The boiler unit at the Alabama A&M dorm that left students without hot water for more than two months has been replaced, school President Andrew Hugine said Wednesday.

The boiler faltered March 2 at Palmer Hall, leaving a female dorm with more than 100 students without air conditioning during the warmest March in more than 100 years and without hot water for the rest of the semester.

The boiler system has been completely replaced as well as the cooling unit, according to Walter Alexander, who oversees campus facilities.
