The dorm students are being moved into while the mold problem is taken care of.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Thursday began a long weekend for Miller Hall residents They began packing up their belongings and moving out of their dorms just 24 hours after hearing the news that mold is kicking them out.
Jazmine Downing said, "It's hectic, everyone is trying to get all their stuff out just trying to pack up everything. It's just hectic in there right now." Phillip Campbell adds, "It's just kind of chaos, there's boxes everywhere, but it's going well so far."
Students returned from fall break Wednesday morning and were notified high levels of mold spores were found inside their dorm. The mold spores found are common but the levels are high. For the safety of the students, they're being transferred to three different locations: Cardinal Towne, The Bellamy and The Province.
"I'm actually pretty excited. It's a lot better than the dorm. We'll have our own kitchen and shower and stuff," said McKenna Ratliff. "At first I was afraid I would have to move back home but then they told us the options. We're really getting upgraded," said Smith.
Miller Hall residents we spoke to say they never saw the mold, but the staff clearly did. Hall officials say a few students notified them before break that they believed there was mold in the air conditioning.
The residents have to be out by Friday and their personal belongings have to be out by Sunday at 6 p.m.
