Power restored to most affected buildings

Power has been restored to almost all buildings that were affected by the overnight outage and the brief additional planned outage at 3:30 p.m. today. We expect power to be restored to the Bookstore and the Barnum Center early this evening.

Initial assessment indicates that a failed power cable, located between Stern Hall and the Bookstore, led to the initial outage Tuesday night that affected certain buildings on the central and east side of the main Stanford campus. LBRE will be conducting further assessment work. We appreciate the university community’s patience and understanding during this event.
