OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — The University of Mississippi campus in Oxford has reopened Monday after workers repaired a water main break.

The campus remains under a boil water order.

School officials say the campus earlier Monday lost water pressure on campus, forcing a shutdown of campus buildings.

College officials say offices opened at noon, and classes started at 1 p.m.

The school says physical plant crews found and isolated the water main break.

Any individuals who receive their water supply from the university should boil water vigorously for one minute before using.

This area includes all campus buildings — residence halls, office buildings, academic buildings, and athletic venues.
