The Student Union and Carlson Library will fully reopen to the public Friday, May 29, following the completion of repairs to water lines to the buildings.

Water was restored to the buildings Thursday afternoon, and restroom facilities can be used.

The drinking fountains, however, will remain closed while the buildings are under a boil water drinking advisory.

Food service in the Student Union will reopen after Toledo-Lucas County Health Department officials test the water and the drinking water advisory is lifted.

During the summer months Starbucks, Subway, Magic Wok and Phoenica Cuisine are open on weekdays. Starbucks is open form 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Subway and Magic Wok are open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Phoenicia Cuisine’s hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we worked to address this issue,” said Jason Toth, associate vice president of facilities.

Following a water main break earlier this month, approximately 100 feet of waterlines to the union and library buildings were replaced. Portable toilets, hand-washing stations, bottled water and maintained life safety systems allowed for limited operations during the repairs.
