Power Outages - Residence Hall Policy

Should the residence hall experience a power outage, students should remain calm and get a flashlight if he/she has one. If a student is in an unlighted area he/she should proceed cautiously to an area with emergency lighting and remain in that area until he/she hears from hall staff. A student in an elevator should remain calm and use the emergency call button or telephone to alert the police. In the event of a significant power outage, the front desk of the residence hall will serve as the central communication center for the hall staff and students until the power is restored.
