Spring Break 2020 Power Outage Information

The Utilities and Energy department will conduct maintenance on feeder breakers that will require short duration power outages on Monday, March 23rd and Tuesday, March 24th. Most buildings on campus will experience brief duration power outages lasting approximately 10 minutes plus building restoration time. This utility maintenance is critical for the continued safe operation of the campus electrical system.

On Monday, the feeder shutdowns and planned outages will start at 8:00 am and buildings will experience a brief outage at a scheduled time based on building feeder. On Tuesday, the entire campus will move from EWEB power onto full campus power temporarily to test the backup generator system at the Central Power Station at 8:00 am. During the testing, the power to campus may be lost if a portion of the system does not perform as expected.

Extra Notes:  In order to accomplish this you will see a group of CPFM and outside consultant staff touring buildings doing visual inspections of all building components from the exterior to the interior.  This process will be ongoing for approximately 4-5 weeks.

Update Regarding Revised Building Access Request Process

Revised Building Access Request Process Notification


As a result of further consideration informed by feedback received from the campus community, Campus Planning & Facilities Management (CPFM) will initiate the initial phase of a revised key distribution process to streamline processes and improve building security and access. Follow up phases and modifications to the process will result from the work of a Building Access Advisory Committee to be formed over the next year.

Beginning 1/2/2020, this initial phase will transition away from the previous refundable key deposit system to a no-fee based system for initial, non-consignment key requests.  Non-refundable fees will only be charged to requesting Departments for consignment (department managed loaner/check out keys) and lost/replacement key requests.  Departments are accountable for all keys issued on behalf of the Department and will continue to be responsible for all costs associated with Departmental re-keying requests as well as re-keying activities resulting from lost, stolen or misplaced keys operating doors opened by individual, sub-master, and building master keys.

Individual key holders and Departments who received keys on or before 1/2/2020 and paid a deposit will receive refunds upon request during a time frame to be determined and communicated in the next few weeks.

University keys are the property of the University of Oregon, and therefore it is imperative key management records are accurate to ensure all keys are accounted for. The Key and Access office will continue to track all issued keys by individual user via the access request form (https://emu.uoregon.edu/key-and-access-office).  Departments are allowed to take the key from a leaving/transferring employee and assign it to another employee without returning it to the Key and Access office by processing the same access request form as an initial access request. In all cases, the final key holder will be required to sign the Key Issuance form officially transferring the possession of the key from the previous to current key holder.

Fee Structure:

Key Description Fee
Replacement Building Exterior/ Individual Room Door Key $10
Departmental Consignment Keys $10
Replacement Department Master Key (building sub-master key) $40
Replacement Building Master Keys (requires CPFM Facilities approval) $80


Other Access Fees Add/Delete/Updates
Individual Key-pad Programming

(Modifications to Locknetic and Omni locks)


(Time & Material Charge)

To request building access, visit the Key and Access website at https://emu.uoregon.edu/key-and-access-office and select the appropriate form along the right side of the page.

Key distribution and access control is managed by CPFM Facilities Services as part of the EMU ID Card Services Key and Access Office.

If that is not possible, Printing & Mailing Services has contacted FedEx and UPS and let them know that if they can’t access the delivery location, then packages can be delivered to the Baker Building. Printing & Mailing will then email the recipient department. Packages can then be delivered with normal campus mail or the department can go and pick up the package directly at the Baker Building.

Klamath Hall Water Intrusion 11/21/19

A water intrusion in Klamath Hall was caused by a safety shower in the third-floor restroom that was activated and left on. The event that led to the shower being turned on is under investigation at this time. Damages include impacts to wall and ceiling finishes in the areas indicated on the diagram below. EHS will prepare a more detailed inventory through the course of today. There also appears to be impacts to office equipment and lab equipment as a result of this event. 

Individual departments are responsible for inventorying damaged non-building related items, such as computers, office furnishings, lab equipment, etc. The Office of Risk Management within Safety & Risk Services is available to provide guidance, inventory forms, and other information on the insurance process associated with these claims. This information can be found at https://safety.uoregon.edu/property-claims. Please contact Risk Management if you have any questions about this process. Their contact information is indicated on the website link above. 

Occupants can expect obstructions in the hallways, related to the containment set up, in order to remove impacted rubber cove base and sheetrock.  These installations may be up as long as a week.
