The busted pipe was reported Tuesday and damaged an unknown number of units in Henderson Hall, said Cynthia W. Roseberry, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Wilberforce University.

The number of affected students was not immediately known. Roseberry said all displaced students have been housed in the Ramada hotel in Xenia.

An estimate on how long repairs might take or how long the students will be displaced is unknown. Roseberry added the university is working as quick as possible to get the students back in their dorms.
