Dorm Warning

Plagued with major maintenance and financial problems, ASU's decrepit residence halls fail to make the grade

Feeling ignored by ASU, maintenance supervisors say they have begun approaching Arizona legislators about the dire conditions in the halls. They say they soon hope to meet with Representative Laura Knaperek, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee, about diverting some of the state's budget surplus to shore up the university's dorms.

"I have no idea what will happen to some of these older buildings if something isn't done," Heritage says. "At some point down the line, we will be approaching some major safety issues. I'm really not looking forward to the next couple years with things as they are."
