Update on power outage
The power outage is affecting many parts of the Peninsula area and is believed to be associated with the Edgewood Fire burning in the Emerald Hills area. Cellular service is also affected in some parts of campus.
PG&E has not provided an estimated time of restoration, and those on campus should prepare for the possibility of being without power for several hours.
Flashlights are being distributed to student residences that do not have generator power, and are also available at the areas of respite (Arrillaga Family Dining Commons and EVGR Pavilion). Be aware that some parking areas and walkways may lack lighting after dark.
Any students requiring assistance after-hours should call the after-hours helpline at (650) 725-1602. If you are a visitor attending a conference on campus and require assistance, contact (650) 723-3126.
Level 4c chilled water curtailment remains in effect. Some power has been restored to cooling equipment for the hospital and other critical infrastructure.
Next update is anticipated after approximately 8:00PM.
