Health and Safety for Students


Unfortunately, a main water line to the Law School is leaking and needs to be repaired. The leaking line is part of the system that supplies running water to the following locations: Chitwood, Weymouth, Coleman, and Wiggins. In addition to our buildings being impacted several other university buildings including: KTTZ, Law School, Student Rec, Architecture and Media Communications will also be impacted by this repair.

In order to repair this line and prevent further water issues, repairs will be made on Saturday, September 19, 2020; starting at 10:00 a.m. While work is being done, there will be no running water in sinks, showers, toilets, or laundry machines in any of the impacted buildings. The work is scheduled to take place all day, and while we hope that things go quickly, water service will be restored no later than 7:00 PM on Saturday, presuming no additional issues present themselves.

While we understand the inconvenience this poses, the team repairing the leak is also going to add a valve to prevent future shutdowns. Please plant to shower prior to 10:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m. We wanted to give you as much notice as possible, so you can plan your Saturday accordingly. We will be adding portable toilets and portable sinks near the impacted residence halls for the weekend. All hand sanitizer stations will be filled and monitored during the weekend.

Please help the success of this project by making sure your sink faucet is not left in the open position after 10:00 a.m. This will help prevent any water damage when the water is turned back on. When the water has been turned off for an extended period of time it may take longer for it to get hot. After the water has been successfully restored to our halls, an email will be sent out notifying you of the update.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please notify the front desk, or your Community Advisor. University Student Housing and Texas Tech University appreciates your understanding and patience with this process as TTU works to get things fixed as soon as possible.
