Two IUSB buildings suffered water damage over winter break. Director of Facilities Management Michael Prater, described five separate incidents that occurred in the Education and Arts Building and Northside Hall.

Prater said he expects the Education and Arts Building classrooms to be restored in two or three weeks. However, Northside will be a long-term project.

“At Northside, we are still evaluating and trying to best compensate and to best correct for deficiencies in the building. It is an old building. The section that failed was part of the original building built in the late 50s early 60s,” Prater said.

Although, no active classrooms were damaged by the leak, Prater understands the damage is very disruptive for the professors and apologizes for any inconvenience the damage has caused.
