Fake News: Temporary staircase closure leaves students displaced, afraid

By in Distractions

MEMORIAL UNION BUILDING — As superficial renovations continue in the University of Saskatchewan’s Memorial Union Building, creating rerouted walkways through the building’s sort of complicated ground-floor layout, students are suffering dire consequences.

At least nine students have been trapped in the MUB since the main stairwell connecting Louis’ Loft and Louis’ Pub was closed to the public. Several of these individuals have found respite and shelter in the Multi-Faith Chaplains’ Office, located in Room 118 of the MUB, while two others have negotiated refuge at the Sheaf in exchange for new joke ideas.

“I just got all turned around. I came here on Thursday to meet a friend for a drink, and I’ve been trying to find a way out of this hallway ever since,” said Sheaf staff favourite, Mitchell Miller, on March 5, adding, “I’ve never even seen this place before.”
Another student has begun efforts to fortify one of three gender-neutral washrooms on the ground floor. However, as of March 6, the Sheaf has not been able to reach them for comment.
