The University of Louisville is ordering 270 freshmen to pack up and move out in the middle of midterm exams after high levels of mold were found in their residence hall.

The students were told Wednesday they won't be able to sleep in Miller Hall after tonight and have until 6 p.m. Sunday to remove all of their belongings.
