Power being restored to remaining main campus buildings
PG&E continues to work on the Jefferson line that supplies power to the main Stanford campus. They have also been able to supply the campus with additional energy to the line currently supplying our backup power, allowing the process of full power restoration to begin. Those on the main campus should see power returning to buildings incrementally throughout the day. As this occurs, crews are also performing building assessments to ensure that building systems return to operation as they should.
Summer Session classes will resume on Monday; students should look for information from their instructors for any updates on their course. Normal campus operations and programs will be resuming as staffing allows. Main-campus employees on Monday should resume the work routines they had in place before the power disruption. Labs may reopen once normal power is restored; please consult with your local building managers.
When returning to housing and work stations, please remember to ensure cooking and heating appliances are safely turned off, and check for any equipment that may not be functioning properly. Food in refrigerators and freezers may be spoiled – discard any perishable food. Those in research spaces should similarly check for any heating or heat-producing equipment that may have been left in the on position and survey workspaces.
We want to thank the members of our campus community for your patience over the past days, and extend special appreciation to the incredible groups of university staff who have worked tirelessly to restore power, support students living on campus and uphold research. Many members of the university staff have dedicated the past few days to working long hours with very little rest to provide support for the campus community, and their efforts are deeply appreciated.
