LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Students will begin moving back into a dorm at the University of Louisville that was closed during the fall semester because of mold damage.
Classes at Uof L resume Monday after the semester break and students are expected to move back into Miller Hall on Saturday and Sunday.
"We had mold growth on almost every surface in the building," says U of L Housing Director Shannon Staten. "We had to come in and do a complete wipe down of all of the building, the walls, the ceilings, the floors and the furniture."
There were 270 freshmen living in the dorm when the mold was found. After the students were moved out, crews replaced the entire heating and air system in the building which was found to be the root cause of the mold problem.
The university also replaced all furniture that was inside Miller Hall.
The total cost of the cleanup is estimated to be near 3.2 million dollars.
