The University of Regina says two students have confessed to causing a flood in a residence building. 

It happened nearly two weeks ago when a broken fire sprinkler sent water pouring through the multi-storey building.

The damage left some students out of their rooms for days and caused an estimated $250,000 in damage.

U of R vice-president of student affairs John Smith said the pair that caused the flood are being evicted from the residence.

They could also face fines or expulsion.

"We don't know what could happen, until the final investigation, all the notes are in, all the information is in and we have the full story," he said.

An 18-year-old from Brooks, Alberta has been charged with mischief over $5,000.

Police said his first court appearance will be on November 14.
