  • None at this time



  • Campus-Wide Power Outage set for Mar. 13


The scheduled power outage will proceed as planned on Monday, Mar. 13 at midnight. The outage is expected to last approximately four hours. Once the repairs are complete and the power has been restored, Physical Plant technicians will make sure that the infrastructure — boilers, HVAC chillers, etc. -- in all facilities is back up and operating normally. Restarting of specialty/research equipment is the responsibility of each department.

In the event of rain, an alternate date between Tuesday, March 14, and Saturday, March 18, will be chosen and communicated accordingly to the campus community.


  • Multiple Physical Plant repairs to begin Saturday, Mar. 11


Repairs to a gas line and valve will take place on Saturday, Mar. 11. During the repair process the gas will be shut down to the following facilities: Dubard School for Language Disorders, J.B. George Building, Reed Green Coliseum, The Payne Center and Johnson Natatorium. The affected facilities will not have hot water and may also experience cooler than normal temperatures.

Also, repairs to a gas line at the corner of Golden Eagle Avenue and Charles Lane will begin on Saturday, Mar. 11. All lanes of traffic will remain open during the repair process, however several parking spots and a portion of the sidewalk, as well as the ADA ramp along the west side of Johnson Science Tower, will be closed. The repairs are expected to be complete by Monday, March 13. The sidewalk will close again when the ground has settled so that concrete can be re-poured.

Weather dependent, all of the above repairs will be complete by the end of day Tuesday, Mar. 15. Please obey all directional signage and stay outside the boundaries of any secured area. For questions call the Physical Plant at 601.266.4414.

Multiple spaces on the south side of the Bolton Hall parking lot will be blocked as technicians replace a nearby cooling tower.   Weather dependent, the work will be complete and the parking spaces will reopen on Monday, Mar. 20.
