Knoxville (WVLT) No water means no classes at the Hardin Valley Campus of Pellissippi State today.

The campus closed at 10 am Monday as crews work to repair a broken water pipe.

Classes scheduled to start at 9:40 were also canceled.

Pellissippi State administrators say the campus will have no water service for the rest of the day.

That includes bathrooms.

All employees and students need to be off campus during the repairs.

Normal campus operations are expected to resume on Tuesday morning.

The Division Street, Magnolia Avenue, and Blount County campuses are not affected by the water pipe break and will remain in normal operations today.

Network and computer services will remain operational.
