Flood update 5 – Service Point, Welcome Centre open tomorrow
As we mop up from yesterday’s flooding on the downtown campus and deal with a continuing influx of water from a smaller water main leak that has yet to be sealed, there is some progress in getting the University back to normal.
Service Point and the Welcome Centre, located in the basement of the McLennan Library Building, will both open tomorrow, with reduced Wednesday hours, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Morning classes in both the Birks Building and Wilson Hall will be relocated. At the moment, we have details of the Wong relocations available at http://publications.mcgill.ca/reporter/files/2013/01/Wong-class-relocations-jan30-Feb2.pdf
A decision on where the afternoon classes that are normally held in those buildings will take place is to be made in the morning.
Classes will continue to be relocated out of the Wong Engineering Building and Physics labs there remain cancelled. Wong is likely to remain closed for the rest of the week.
The James Administration Building also remains closed for the time being. Its reopening will be determined by the City of Montreal’s ability to stem the significant water leak that continues to flow onto the campus from Dr. Penfield Ave., near the back door of the James Building. The James Annex will be closed for a significant period of time.
Because the City of Montreal may keep University St. closed tomorrow morning, people who park in the Burnside garage and Frank Dawson Adams courtyard should plan on parking elsewhere.
We continue to urge members of the community to exercise caution in moving around the campus and in the areas off campus that were affected by yesterday’s flood.
