Cal Poly dorm closed for rest of school year as hill slides

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — More than 270 college students have moved out of a dorm at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo because a nearby hill continues to slide toward the building.

The university says it was necessary to close Fremont Hall by Friday because another storm predicted to arrive during the weekend is expected to further compromise the hill.

The dorm was evacuated last Saturday and after the decision to close it for the remainder of the academic year, students returned Thursday to pack up their belongings.

The residents have been relocated elsewhere at the university and off campus.
