Campus Update: Broken Water Pipe

Editor’s note: The following message is being emailed to all students, faculty and staff on Jan. 28, 2018.


Repairs are underway and classes will be in session on Monday after a water pipe running underground between Campus Village 2 and Campus Village C broke open, sending a heavy stream of water down the San Carlos and Seventh Street paseos.

San Jose Water Company crews responded, and will spend the evening repairing the broken pipe and cleaning debris near the residence halls. Maintenance crews are also cleaning portions of the Student Wellness Center and Student Union. Both are expected to open for business as usual on Monday.

The San Jose Water Company pipe runs through campus on an easement, and does not service campus specifically. For this reason, water service to SJSU should not be disrupted.

We would like to extend our gratitude to all who have assisted with the repairs and cleanup, with a special thanks to Campus Village residents and staff as crews work outside through the night.
