The University of South Dakota will pay for another night of lodging to accommodate students displaced since Monday night’s broken water pipe in Coyote Village. The building remains closed today as officials work to restore water and power.
The broken pipe has been replaced and repairs are being made to the electrical components damaged by water from the break. But since university officials are uncertain of the building’s status for tonight, USD will pay for another night of lodging for Coyote Village residents.
About 280 students spent last night at three local hotels. The University also provided 75 pizzas that were delivered to students at the hotels at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
USD is operating shuttle service for students every 15 minutes to transport students from their hotels to various campus locations.
The 500 residents of Coyote Village will continue to have access to their rooms until 5 p.m. today to retrieve clothing and belongings during the daylight hours.
