Power Outage 2020 Update

Dear UO campus community,

We are writing to inform you and help you plan for upcoming planned power outages scheduled to take place across campus on Monday, June 1, and Tuesday, June 2.

These include:

  • Short, staggered outages during scheduled times starting at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, June 1, and lasting throughout the morning and early afternoon. Affected buildings are listed here.
  • A campus-wide shutdown at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 2, will result in a brief loss of power to all buildings on campus.

This is the same project originally slated to take place during spring break, but that has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Both the impacted buildings and the outage schedule remain the same as the original project.

While we recognize that most of you are not on campus at present, it is important for you to consider how these outages might affect your equipment and your operations and to plan accordingly. For some, this may mean powering down equipment in advance of scheduled outages or taking additional steps.

If you would like assistance in planning for the outage, you may submit this survey to request help. The survey can be used to seek assistance in powering down and/or rebooting equipment on campus, including desktop computers.

The university does not expect major disruptions to its wired or wireless network on campus, or its core IT services such as email, Canvas, Zoom, DuckWeb, Banner, or Office 365 during this project.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the detailed timeline for these scheduled outages, which are posted on the June power outage webpage hosted by Campus Planning and Facilities Management. If you would like assistance in assessing potential impacts and planning for the outage, you may submit this survey to request help.

Additionally, we anticipate that on-campus operations will still be suspended at the start of June and building access will be limited. Individuals returning to campus to make preparations for the outages need to submit the appropriate access request forms.

We appreciate your flexibility and thank you for support in completing this critical utility maintenance.

Updates will be posted on the June power outage webpage and shared on Around the O.
