Yesterday CMM reported the university was nearly back to normal, with damage done in Monday’s hailstorm pretty much repaired. Not at University House it isn’t
The university advises the much-loved heritage guest-accommodation has taken a horrible hail-hiding, that events are off and guests out until end February.
There is water damage to the entire top floor and to function rooms, with the 66 years-old original tile roof, “the major area of concern.”
University House is not flash, but it is charming, “Bertie and Jeeves would have loved it,” a learned reader remarks.
Here’s hoping the repair job is not one of those horrors where fixing one problem reveals another.
