Update 05 May 18:48 : Many Mac Campus buildings to remain closed on Monday, May 6

Unexpected technical constraints have led to a delay in returning to regular electrical power for the eleven buildings at Macdonald Campus that have been on emergency backup power over the weekend for a planned electrical shutdown. Though the crews continue to work on restoring power to all buildings, the work will not be completed in time for us to reopen the buildings as planned at midnight tonight.
