A Special Message to the CSUSB Community:

On Sunday, August 18th, the campus will be correcting a safety recall on parts at the electrical substation to improve safety of power delivery to the campus. To perform this work, electricity will be turned off on the entire San Bernardino campus from 4:00am - Noon. The outage will not impact the Palm Desert Campus nor University Village. The campus community should carefully read the information below to adequately prepare your work area for outage impacts.

Access to CSUSB
During this period the campus will be closed, no events are to be scheduled. Access to the campus will be limited to those with critical support functions.

Individual Preparedness
While every effort will be made to limit the power outage impacts, the campus community should work on the assumption that electrical power will be unavailable during this eight hour period. Please take the following steps to prepare:

  • Electronics – Prior to leaving for the weekend, please ensure that all electronics are completely turned off. Sensitive and valuable electronics should be unplugged to protect them from power surges.
  • Refrigerators – Refrigerators in breakrooms, offices, and student housing will not have power during the outage. It is highly recommended that all refrigerators are emptied, if possible, turn them off.
  • Charging Equipment – Charge cell phones, laptops, and other equipment in advance of the outage.
  • Research and Experiments – Do not plan to perform experiments or other work that relies on consistent power.
  • Elevators and Accessibility – Elevators will not be operational during the outage. Elevators will be shut-down beginning on Saturday afternoon, August 17th and will be returned to service on Sunday, August 18th.

Buildings Supported by Generators
The following buildings are equipped with generators and may have full or partial emergency power throughout the outage period: Animal House, Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Coyote Commons Dining, Facilities Management, Jack Brown Hall, Pfau Library, Physical Sciences, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Student Health Center, and University Police.

Human Resources Information
Most employees will not report to work on August 18th, as it is a Sunday. For employees required to work, please coordinate directly with your manager or supervisor, as your work schedule and/or work location may be adjusted during this period. Managers should ensure that there is adequate lighting to support a safe work place.

Student Housing and Dining
Some students will continue to live in campus housing during the outage period. The office of Housing and Residential Education will have staffing in place to support resident needs and will provide detailed updates to residents. All campus dining, vending machines, student union and the student recreation center will be closed during the outage.

ITS Information
All campus services hosted in the Data Center will remain operational. Campus websites, analog phones, and 911 will also be operational. The following services may experience interruptions or be unavailable: network service in campus buildings will be disrupted, wireless access, office VOIP telephones in areas with no backup generator, and MyCoyote. Anyone working on documents and/or connected to campus IT services should save work often, work from a non-campus location, or refrain from critical systems-related work during the outage. Again, if you need to perform work or access services during the outage period, it is highly recommended to do so from an off-campus location.

Emergency Services
All campus emergency services will be operational. University Police will have enhanced staffing and presence during the outage. Dial 9-1-1 for emergency response needs. Please do not contact UPD dispatch for general outage questions or issues.

Questions and Concerns
Information about significant impacts will be posted on the Facilities Planning and Management Campus Disruption page, http://facilities.csusb.edu/disruptions.html . General information during the outage will be available via the campus website www.csusb.edu.
