Please be advised:
In preparation for the construction of the Student Success Center (SSC), it will be necessary to have electrical power work performed. Due to the aging electrical infrastructure on campus, this work will require the following:
•    Four (4) buildings to have a complete shutdown (list below).
•    A large number of additional buildings may possibly experience several service interruptions each of which would last fewer than 5 minutes in duration. 
•    The proposed date of Sunday, December 15, 2019 was selected due to the scope and safety considerations required for this work, as it can only be performed during a time period when power usage is at its lowest and campus business operations are closed. 
It is our goal to limit interruptions related to this power project. Facilities Services staff will be onsite to ensure all power returns to normal. Buildings with back-up generators will support fire and life safety systems and E-power circuits only.

Date: Sunday, December 15, 2019 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
1.    The following four buildings will have a FULL POWER SHUTDOWN. During this time, occupants will not be allowed in the building.

•    The buildings below are not scheduled to experience long term power outage. Any power interruption which may occur will likely be brief in nature, lasting from a few seconds to a few minutes.
•    If interruptions occur, they will likely occur 2 times in the morning between 7am – 10am and 2 times mid-day between 1pm – 4pm. For a total of 4 possible interruptions.
