If you were planning on getting breakfast or coffee this morning at the K-State Student Union, you might want to get it at home or on the way to campus instead.
Restaurants at the Union are closed this morning due to a burst pipe, as stores and restaurants were notified overnight that water would be unavailable early Thursday morning.
A sign outside a closed Radina’s Coffeehouse at the Union apologized for the inconvenience and said the restaurant would open at 9 a.m. At about 7:10 a.m., a maintenance worker at the Union said it would be at least another hour before water was restored to the building.
Cat’s Den was open at its regular 7 a.m. opening time. The convenience store is serving coffee prepared earlier this morning at 5 a.m., in addition to its other prepackaged items.
Other buildings on campus did not appear to be affected by the shut-off.
“It’s disappointing because I can’t refill my water and stay hydrated for a long day ahead,” Alan Hinds, sophomore in agricultural economics and pre-law, said.
