The Hub, campus’ newest dining hall, is expected to become an option for students today once repairs are completed.

Just days after its grand opening on Thursday, The Hub experienced a fire at approximately 8:45 p.m. Saturday, according to university spokesman Adam Freeman. This incident caused the 24-hour eating option for students to close its doors.

Freeman said a “small electrical fire” caused the issue. The Tampa Fire Department responded to the scene and the building was evacuated.

According to Freeman, The Hub is expected to reopen today at 7 a.m. and resume the facility’s 24-hour service.

Freeman said the amount of damage caused by the fire is unknown along with the estimated cost of repairs and when repairs are expected to be completed.
