A large number of rodents and insects have been spotted inside some of the VCU residence halls in the past two months due to the cold temperature, said Allison Patel, the assistant director of facilities for Residential Life and Housing.
VCU will close today at 4 p.m. due to expected inclement weather tonight. The university alerted students around noon via text message and email that the university will remain closed Feb. 13, as well.
Residential Life and Housing gave students the opportunity to look at what could potentially be their new bedroom during the first inaugural Residential Life & Housing Furniture Fair on Tuesday in the Commons.
For students living in the VCU dorms, crime can hit close to home.
