On Friday, March 18, beginning at 11 p.m., there will be a temporary shutdown of all campus electrical services while PG&E re-routes power to support our new electrical infrastructure system. Barring unforeseen challenges, power is expected to be fully restored by 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 19. University Police will have additional patrols during the power shutdown.

Steps to take before you leave work on Friday, March 18:


• Save all electronic files and documents.
• Turn off all lights, computers, laptops, printers, copy machines, and fax machines.
• Turn off all other electrical devices and non-essential equipment.
• Remove any perishable items from refrigerators and make sure all freezer doors are tightly closed.

• Barstow Avenue between Woodrow and Cedar Avenues will be closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic starting at 10 pm on Friday March 18 and will remain closed throughout the duration of the weekend.
