The seven women and seven children told the student they were left outside the building during Monday night. Soon after that, several more refugees were found near a local police station.
"They were panicked… the women had no idea where they were and no idea where their husbands – who were apparently arrested – were," Michal Zvieli, who found the refugees, told Ynet.
Over the last few months Beersheba had seen dozens of refugees from Darfur come to the city after crossing the Israeli-Egyptian border.
Attempting to help, the Beersheba municipality decided - as a short-term solution - to put up 150 refugees in the city's hotels. They have now been there for a month.
"The city has spent over $72,000 trying to find housing solutions for these (150) refugees. We simply can't afford to help any others," said the city in a statement.
As for the 14 refugees found this morning, the Beersheba municipality said it would try to find a solution for them, but would probably transfer them to Ramat Aviv, as Pini Badash, mayor of nearby Omer, suggested.
