Newsflash: Landowner illegally renting room to me. Can I move out and get my rent and deposit back?

I am a college student renting a room from an elderly lady who owns an affordable housing unit. She is illegally renting out the room to me and she keeps flip flopping on her word and keeps coming back to the apartment when she said she would give me notice beforehand. She refuses to let me change any decor (she has 20+ mirrors in a 600 square foot apartment and it is TERRIFYING. She’s insanely paranoid and I do not want to live here anymore as it is also illegal for her to rent me the room. She made me sign a contract saying I had to give her a 30 day notice but seeing as this renting is illegal, can I move out any time and get my rent/deposit back?
