Dozens of Arizona State University students will be displaced for five days following a water main break at their Tempe dorms on Tuesday.

School officials said Wednesday that approximately 150 students were affected when the hot water pipe failed on the fifth floor of Juniper Hall, located within Barrett Honors College.

Students who were affected were relocated to nearby hotels and other residence halls that ASU had available.

ASU spokesperson Ashley Irwin said crews are working to repair the flooding damage.
