Editor’s note: This story has been updated from a previous version.

The Corbin Education Center is closed until further notice after a water pipe burst and flooded the basement, the university announced Tuesday afternoon. The building was initially scheduled to reopen this Wednesday.

The press release said that any major damages were limited to the basement, but the equipment controlling air conditioning, power and IT services needs to be replaced and will take “many months.”

According to a press release from Strategic Communications, the building could reopen as early as September. 

Students should keep up with their school email and Blackboard for updates on how and where their classes will continue for the rest of the semester.

Faculty and staff who work in the building are being rehoused throughout campus and can contact Eason Bryer or Aaron Conyers to retrieve their belongings from the building.

The university set up a website for updates regarding the building.
