Spring Break 2020 Power Outage Information

Spring break power outages postponed

The work originally scheduled for March 23-24 will be rescheduled in spring term

The spring break power outages have been postponed. The outages were originally scheduled March 23-24 to allow for critical utility maintenance and testing.

“Because of the steps the UO has taken to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, we have made the decision to move the power outages to later in the spring,” said Mike Harwood, associate vice president of Campus Planning and Facilities Management. “This will keep staff available to be part of the university’s response to the virus."

Campus Planning and Facilities Management is working closely with the Incident Command Team and will reassess the situation mid-April.
