Power Outage In May

Posted from Friday, March 22, 2019 through Wednesday, May 01, 2019
A planned power outage is scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, May 17 through May 19, 2019 to allow for maintenance to SMSU's electrical infrastructure system.


Power may go down in select buildings on Friday, May 17 — but the buildings taken down will not interfere with work schedules. Power for the entire campus is expected to go down starting at 6:00 am on Saturday, May 18 and brought back on-line by 9:00 pm Sunday, May 19.

This power outage affects all academic, administrative and residence hall buildings but does not include the Foundation Apartments.

Because we want to ensure the safety and security of our employees and facilities, the electrical contractor and limited authorized staff will be the only people allowed in the buildings during the power outage.

Faculty and staff are advised to power off and unplug from wall outlets all electrical appliances (e.g. computers, monitors, printers, faxes, refrigerators) prior to the all-campus power outage to avoid potential damage to equipment. Phones do not need to be unplugged.

Back-up dates for this work are May 24 through May 26, 2019. If you have any questions concerning this outage, please contact Cyndi Holm, Director of Facilities and Physical Plant, cyndi.holm@smsu.edu. Thank you!
