UW-Oshkosh closes Halsey lecture halls after flood

The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh is working to get campus buildings back to normal after heavy rains caused flooding this week.

School administrators have decided to keep lecture halls at Halsey Science Center closed on Friday. Students should get an email telling them if their class has been relocated.

All other Halsey classrooms and labs are dry and are expected to have normal Friday schedules.

This week’s flooding also prompted the school to shut off water to Donner Hall. Water will remain shut off to the 223-student residence hall into Friday.

Officials say Donner Hall is safe and residents were allowed to stay there Thursday evening. But they won’t have running water and can’t use the bathrooms or showers.

Parts of other UW-Oshkosh buildings had flood damage but have resumed regular schedules.
