OXFORD, MS (WMC) -

Several buildings on University of Mississippi's campus are still without water.

A water main broke on the Oxford campus, knocking out water pressure in the area on Thursday.

In light of the water main break, a boil-water alert was issued for everyone on campus.

Any water coming from the university's water system should be boiled for at least one minute before it is consumed.

If you cannot boil the water, you are advised to use only bottled water until the alert has been lifted.

The alert won't be lifted until Saturday at the earliest.
