Power is restored, campus is operating normally

Power has been restored to campus buildings, and the campus will be operating normally on Thursday.

The source of Wednesday’s power outage, which affected a portion of the campus, was traced to a cable failure at a transformer serving the new Bass Biology Building, which has been under construction and has not yet been occupied. After this cable failure was isolated, power was restored at approximately 10 p.m. Wednesday night to the handful of other campus buildings that remained without power.

Work will proceed on Thursday to restore power to Bass Biology. The cause of the original outage appears to be equipment failure.

University IT staff worked overnight to ensure IT services were restored as power was restored to affected buildings. Any remaining issues can be reported to 5-HELP or by filing a ticket at services.stanford.edu.
