8 a.m. update on power
Technicians have identified a fault believed to be the cause of the power outage affecting some buildings on the east side of the main Stanford campus. Electricians will be working to isolate it and then begin the process of re-energizing the line. It is estimated that fully restoring power in the area could take up to 8 hours.
Some buildings in the affected area, including Stern Hall and Vaden Health Center, are operating on backup generator power. Vaden plans to be operating as usual today.
Student residences without power are Crothers and some houses in the Cowell Cluster. Students in these residences are welcome to dine at the Arrillaga Family Dining Commons, which is open and operating.
No classes are believed to be affected by the outage. Some scheduled events may be moved out of the Barnum Center today due to the outage.
Thank you to those affected for your patience with the situation. Additional updates will be posted, when available, on this page.
