Students move back into Miller Hall after mold is cleared

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hundreds of University of Louisville students have moved back in to a dorm that was shut down months ago for mold problems.

Complaints of mold in buildings around U of L's campus prompted an environmental contractor to inspect last summer.

They found high concentrations of mold in places like Miller Hall.

270 students were forced to move out, spending almost the entire semester in hotels or other campus buildings.

"It's nice to get back to actually being back on campus, rather than taking a shuttle," says student Aaron Weber.

Students were forced out because the mold can pose health risks to those with allergies, asthma or compromised immune systems.

Before being cleaned, 80 percent of the rooms in Miller Hall were affected.
