Power outages for Morris Hall and Jean Royce Hall Phase 2 on Jan. 3

Temporary power outages are planned for Morris Hall and Jean Royce Hall Phase 2 on Thursday, Jan. 3 between 8:30 am and 11:30 am to permit Physical Plant Services to safely replace incorrect type of circuit breakers that provide power to the fire alarm systems in both buildings.

The fire alarm systems in both buildings will operate on battery backup while the outages are in progress. Emergency and exit lighting will operate on battery backup only for approximately 30 minutes after the outages begin; thereafter, there will be no lighting available in either of the affected buildings until power is restored to service.

Occupants should power down computers and sensitive equipment prior to 8:30 am on Thursday, Jan. 3.
