At approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday evening, a water pipe burst in Winslow Academic Center, flooding the ground floor.
In an e-mail sent to the Lasell community Wednesday morning, Vice President of Academic Affairs said the damaged was “minimized due to the immediate actions of Lasell staff and the Newton Fire Department.
Despite the small amount of damage, both Campus Police and the Putnam Faculty Center will be closed until further notice. Campus Police phone lines will remain in operation and faculty with offices in Putnam will be relocated to the Technology for Learning Center beneath the library.
Assistant Vice President for Finance Diane Parker said any payments going to Campus Police, such as parking fines, can be paid in the Business Office.
