Homework Help: Chem

For the autoionisation of water, it looks like

2H2O(l)-> H3O+(aq) + OH–(aq)

I thought that becuase it is going from liquid to ions, wouldnt the Entropy be greater than 0?

However, I have been told and I have calculated the opposite, that entropy is less than 0. Please Explain .
