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. The room is still available for use during this time, but it may be noisy.
