This is absolutely not the case - stud is played with a regular 52 card deck, same as any other game, and there should never be more than 52 cards dealt.
If, somehow, all eight players at a full table make it to seventh street, then they'll all have six cards in their hand already.
8 x 6 = 48, which means there's four cards left in the deck.
Now, like I said above: in this event that this (or any other situation in which there aren't enough cards left in the deck to give everyone still in the hand an individual seventh street card) happens, one
card is put face up in the middle and shared by all players.
Note that this can only happen on seventh street, because it's impossible for the deck to run out of cards any time before that. While you're right about stud games not having community cards, an exception has to be made in this rare case.
Skoldpadda has it right though: LOL at eight players making it to seventh street in razz - or any other stud game, come to think of it.
