The basement of New Haven Hall in North Campus at the University of Connecticut flooded Monday due to a storm Sunday night.

“The New Haven Hall basement flooding was the result of heavy rain that fell in a short period of time,” UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said.

Since the flooding was confined to the basement of the building, it did not affect any student dorms.

“They didn’t have to remove any students,” Reitz said. “(The flooding) didn’t affect anybody in terms of needing to move anybody else.”

The water was pumped out of the basement promptly and the issue was resolved by the evening, Reitz said.
