Main Campus Electrical Shutdown

Recommendations to prepare equipment prior to shutdown of all electrical power to main campus buildings

This news post has 2 updates

Why

National Grid repairs to the main electrical feed require power shutdown of main campus buildings (as described in Facilities email to the community on October 13). To protect from power surges, ITS recommends you prepare office equipment prior to Wednesday morning.

Impact

  • Main campus buildings will have no electrical power.
  • Faculty managed servers and workstations within the shutdown area will also be affected.
  • The ITS server room in Fuller Labs will remain powered, so services such as Banner and Terminal Server will be available.
  • Action Needed

    Please shutdown office equipment (computers, printers, copiers, etc.). Using a surge protector is recommended wherever possible. In the absence of a surge protector, the equipment should be unplugged from the power source.
