An underground gas leak discovered near McLane Hall has been fixed, according to university officials.

Vice President for Administration Debbie Adishian-Astone said Sunday night that the leak was fixed but did not say what caused it. All buildings will operate as usual on Monday, she said.

The leak was discovered last Thursday in a grassy area west of McLane Hall.

Natural gas was shut off to several buildings for safety. A staff email from the university said the leak required installation of an isolation valve. Natural gas was shut off to the Thomas Administration, Conley Art, Smittcamp Alumni House, University High School, Kremen Education, Student Recreation Center and Save Mart Center buildings but was restored the same day, the university email said.

Gas services were also shut off for the Engineering West, McLane Hall, University Student Union, ​Madden ​Library, South Gym , North Gym, North Gym Annex and the Aquatics Center. Dining services were not available to students on Friday, but are expected to resume Monday.
