UTC closes Grote Hall due to sinkhole

Posted: Updated:
UTC sent out an email/text alert Sunday night telling students and staff Grote Hall is closed until further notice.

A message on the University's Facebook page states: "Due to a sinkhole next to the building, Grote Hall is closed to access. Only classes in Grote Hall are canceled Monday. Employees in Grote do not need to report to work Monday. All other classes and campus operations remain on normal schedule. More information regarding rescheduling of classes will be issued as soon as it is available."

University spokesperson Chuck Cantrell says the hole is only a few feet wide, but has filled with water due to rain. He says engineers will examine the hole Monday to make sure water is not flowing underneath the building.
