Power Outages

If you notice a power outage, notify the University Police Department and others in your areas as appropriate. Many buildings at the University have emergency lighting in some areas, making it possible for you to evacuate safely in the event of a power outage. There are also flashlights available in individual offices. Once aware of a power outage, the University Police, Facilities Services staff and building managers will assist faculty, staff, students and visitors with any necessary evacuation.

If a power outage occurs:

  • Call University Police at (x2222) and follow instructions.
  • Provide assistance to visitors in your area.
  • Stand by for instructions.
  • If the outage also involves water damage or flooding, avoid contact with electrical appliances or outlets (including computers).
