Clemens Hall elevator in need of repair

Facilities expect to have tentative repair date soon


An elevator in Clemens Hall is still in need of repair, four months after a pipe ruptured, causing extensive damage to several floors in the building.

Elevators 1 and 2 needed new controls immediately following the flood after being directly hit by water, according to the University Facilities Office.

Elevator 3 is also malfunctioning. University Facilities is in the process of getting quotes to update the controls on this elevator as well.

“We’re sorry for the inconvenience this has caused; we hope to have a tentative date for repair soon,” University Facilities said in an email.

The flood has resulted in about $150,000 in damages, according to UB spokesperson John Della Contrada. The damages were primarily for elevator repairs, labor and materials like drywall and carpeting.
