BATON ROUGE - Hundreds of students at Southern University are outraged over no hot water at one of the campus's dormitories.

Residents in Totty Hall told News 2 today that hot water has been spotty all semester.  About four days ago it went away completely.

"I've complained, my mom's complained, she was just here yeasterday complaining about it," Anngelica Taylor said.

University spokesperson Ed Pratt said the problem has to do with the dorm's boilers.  Right now Totty Hall only has one working boiler.  Parts have been ordered for a permanent fix.

"We're working with one boiler instead of two," Pratt said. "They've figured out how to get it to run until we get the second boiler back."

Although hot water has been restored to most of the building, some students told News 2 the cold water is still flowing into their rooms.

"There was no hot water this morning," Taylor said.

Pratt apologized to the students for any inconvenience.  However, students say that apology has come too late.

"I pay a lot of money to stay in Totty, so can I please have my hot water," Deja Joseph said.
