VERMILLION | Nearly 500 University of South Dakota students are being offered hotels for another night after a water pipe break forced an evacuation of their dorm.

USD spokeswoman Tena Haraldson says crews cleaned up the water in Coyote Village, but the broken pipe was over an electrical room and crews are trying to get the necessary parts to restore power.

About 160 students were taken to the student center and given hotel rooms Monday night after a large part of the dorm flooded. Some students hadn't yet returned from the long weekend and others likely stayed with friends.

Haraldson says the university will provide food at the hotels Tuesday evening and a shuttle to get students to their classes.

The cause of the pipe break was not immediately determined.
