The University of Massachusetts Boston is back up and running after shutting down and evacuating its buildings Tuesday morning because of a broken water main at a utility plant, the university said in a memo to students, faculty, and staff. Following repairs, all buildings were reopened at noon, Ellen M. O’Connor, vice chancellor of administration and finance, said in the memo. The school could not provide any water on campus on Tuesday morning, making it unable to offer fire protection or operate restrooms and other facilities.
