Hot Water Off In East Campus

Written by

In case those high lottery cutoff numbers had you thinking EC was some sort of “Palace in the Sky,” you can enjoy a hearty helping of schadenfreude this morning.

Tipsters tell us and Housing confirms that all hot water is off in the building because of “emergency repairs.” Maintenance crews are just now arriving, so there’s no estimated time yet for when the hot water might be back on.

So, if you live in EC and were in need of a hot shower this morning, you may want to investigate the time-honored tradition of the bucket bath. Be sure to heat the water in your microwave first.

UPDATE 12:07 p.m.: Housing confirms the hot water is off in most dorms, the notable exceptions being Woodbridge, Watt, and — The Land That Happiness Forgot — McBain. Repairs are nearly completed, though, so the hot water should be back on shortly.

    do you go to Columbia? Are you run by students any more? Living in the past? Mcbain is actually a pretty nice dorm to live in now, since the renovation. they built a second elevator, a number floors are wood-paneled, doubles are for the most part pretty large, they have treadmills and step-a-trons, etc.

    doesn't mean you can't heat your water in the microwave, but just don't pull it out without first disturbing it with an object to make sure that it didn't superheat

    that is all

    That makes me want to go to prison! Free food, sunny, well-lit rooms, conjugal visits and plenty of free time. So what petty crime do I need to commit in Australia to get there?
