Kent State Trumbull regional campus is closed Monday “due to continuing water issues and a boil order in Champion,” according to a university advisory.

A water main broke along Route 45 near the campus late Friday night, as reported by WKBN news in Youngstown. The sanitation advisory will remain in effect until Monday at 3 p.m., but Champion Township Fire Chief John Hickey said the advisory is “completely cautionary.”

Residents of Champion and Bazetta Township are advised to boil their water for several minutes before consuming it. Kent State Trumbull was founded in 1954 and is comprised of just over 3,000 students, all of whom commute. While no classes will be held Monday, employees will report, per usual.
