Cold temperatures affect Alcorn dormitories

The recent extreme and extended cold weather in the area caused a pipe to burst in the attic on one side of Building D in Medgar Evers Village on Tuesday January 2, 2018.  Due to extensive water damage caused by the burst pipe, a limited number of students have been affected and are requested to adhere to the following housing and move-in adjustments for Spring 2018.

Students assigned to Suite 163, Suite 363 and Suite 463-B will be temporarily relocated to other housing options on the Lorman Campus and/or on the Natchez Campus.

Students in the following suites are requested to DELAY MOVE-IN until 8:00 a.m., Sunday, January 7, 2018, to allow sufficient time for cleanup and repairs:

Suite 161
