The leak developed as construction crews were working on the Tony and Libba Rane Culinary Science Center.
The gas line was a major delivery line which is why it was classified as a "large gas leak" in the University's message. The line belongs to the gas company Spire, and their crews are working to repair the leak, said Fire Battalion Chief Dow Sport.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
