SDSU is working to get temporary air conditioning units set up to cool off residence halls on campus.
Heat-index temperatures on the upper floors of some dorms have reached near 95 degrees. Monday night, 20 students took the University’s offer to re-locate to other air-conditioned buildings on campus. With the heat on again on Tuesday, the school is bringing in cooling units. In addition, water stations are open in each hall.
One student had to be taken to a local medical facility after being overcome by the heat and Student Health Services has been seeing students complaining of heat-related problems.
SDSU is reminding students about places on campus that do have air conditioning and extending hours for some of those locations.
