Hurricane Sandy has been drenching the District, prompting leaks in residence halls across campus.
Students have reported that water is dripping from ceilings and puddling on the floors of Potomac House, 2109 F Street Hall, Francis Scott Key Hall, Mitchell Hall and Fulbright Hall in addition to elevators in Thurston Hall.
Students used cups and trash cans to collect water drips in their rooms and hallways, and in some cases took to Twitter as they awaited GW maintenance workers.
University spokeswoman Michelle Sherrard said Facilities Services is working to repair the leaks in residence halls “as quickly as possible.” Facilities staff is on call throughout the weekend.
“Our facilities staff are extremely busy at the moment,” she said.
Sherrard said she would not be able to specify which buildings were affected, how many students reported leaks or flooding and how many employees are working on repairs until the storm blows over.
