Construction in the 24-7 room

Jan 9, 2018

On Monday, January 8, there was a leak in the 24/7 room. The leak was caused by a combination of snow on the roof and a frozen drain. The snow has been removed, the drain cleared, and repairs have begun.  It will probably take 2 weeks (minimum) for repairs to be completed.  During this time, 3 of the desks in the 24/7 space will have to be removed.
