Students were trapped in two of the three elevators in Butte Hall around 8:30 a.m Wednesday morning according to Officer Lance Conlan of the University Police.

“I think there’s one in elevator three and two or three in elevator two,” he said.

At the time, Officer Conlan said the students had been stuck for approximately 30 minutes after FMS tried to get the elevators going again, but were unsuccessful. Elevator repair personnel were then called and expected to arrive within 15 minutes.

This is not the first time they’ve been stuck, but don’t fail as often as the old Butte Hall elevators, according to Officer Conlan.

There were no reported injuries and the students seemed to remain calm during the ordeal.

“We’ve been talking to them and they’re all doing okay,” said Officer Conlan. “No one’s panicking or anything.”
