(WHAS11) - A preliminary estimate of the damage at the University of Louisville campus reaches more than $15 million.

University President James Ramsey says at this point there are still 10 buildings they're working to clean up.

He says when classes start August 24th, all but two buildings will be ready.

That includes the College of Education and Human Development building and the Houchen's Building, which is where students go to pay for classes and request financial aid.

While the university is insured, they may still need more funding to pay for the damages.

"We have notified the mayor that we'll be seeking reimbursement for non-covered costs, hopefully, if we qualify for FEMA assistance," said James Ramsey, UofL President.

Ramsey says right now they're trying to figure out the best solution for moving classes to other buildings so that students don't have too far to go to get to their next class.
