A dorm was evacuated Saturday night and about 20 Boston University students were trapped in elevators when an electrical malfunction left an entire building without power, the Daily Free Press reports. Some students were freed after just minutes, while others were stuck for hours.

School officials estimate $300,000 in damage, which includes repairing the electrical system and damaged elevators.
