Brief Electrical Shutdown for Some Buildings December 20

Due to some maintenance work NYSEG plans to perform at a power station, the campus will be switching to a back up feed which will involve a brief electrical shutdown lasting no more than five minutes between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Saturday, December 20.

Only the following buildings are affected:

  • Administration
  • Admissions Center
  • Anderson Center
  • East Campus Housing- all buildings including C4
  • Fine Arts
  • Events Center
  • Science V (please note, Science V will remain fully functional)
  • Physical Facilities
  • West Gym

Emergency generators will provide power for life/safety equipment during the shutdown. NYSEG plans another brief shutdown December 23 but we do not yet know the time frame. I will share that once we have it.
