Update: Power outage on part of east campus

Crews are continuing to investigate a power outage that has affected some student residences and other buildings on the eastern side of the main Stanford campus.

The estimated time of the outage is up to 7 hours, depending upon how quickly the source of the problem is identified and resolved.

Some buildings in the affected area continue to operate on generator power.

Arrillaga Family Dining Commons will be extending its late-night hours, which normally end at 2:30 a.m., to accommodate students.

For student residences that are without power for a number of hours, the main entrance will be rekeyed to allow students to use their room key for entry when card readers cease to function. As always, please call 911 to report any suspicious circumstances.

In student residences without power, flashlights for personal use and lanterns for main lounges are being distributed. Candles and open flames should NOT be used.

Thank you, to those affected, for your patience with the situation. Updates will be provided on this website when available.
