On Sunday, January 30, 2022, DSU residents of Tubman Laws Hall experienced a water crisis, resulting in a social media frenzy.
Many residents of the newest residence hall at DSU, Tubman Laws Hall, were appalled to find a brownish substance coming from their water faucets.
Photos and videos of the contaminated water flooded Instagram Stories, and many reports were filed to the University urging an immediate fix. Tubman Laws resident, Ron-Nesha, stated this on her Instagram Story, “ I know everybody is joking about it but this is really sad.”
In response to the many concerns regarding the water in the residential hall, the University sent out a school wide email. The email asked students to “refrain from using the water for cooking, drinking, and bathing until further notice.”
The Facilities Management Department contacted the City of Dover to have the issue corrected as soon as possible.
