McAllister Building water line break causes building shutdown

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Shortly after the lunch hour, a water line collapsed in the first floor of McAllister Building, located in central campus on Pollock Road. Because of significant damage to the first floor and necessary shutdown of electricity, the building has been evacuated and will be closed until further notice.

The building is not expected to reopen until Friday morning (Jan. 25) at the earliest.

Individuals with classes and other scheduled activities in McAllister Building should check with their instructors or group leaders for alternate locations.

The building manager is sending emails to affected faculty and staff; those individuals should check their email accounts for updated building information.
