East Campus to remain powerless until at least morning, Pepco on site

Residents of LXR and Nevils have been informed that power will remain out through at least the night, if not longer.

In an email to residents, University Housing wrote that Pepco is on site and working to fix the problem. They have determined that the outage is due to a fault in the main breaker. They expect to have the problem resolved in the early morning.

Lauinger Library and Sellinger Lounge will remain open throughout the night, and Housing is encouraging students to use showers in Yates Field House or another residence hall if needed.

The University’s operating status is scheduled to be announced between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Dear LXR and Nevils Residents:
Thank you for your understanding with regards to the power situation in your building.  Pepco is on-site and working with Facilities staff to address the power outage.  The power outage was caused by a fault in the main breaker.  We expect to reach a resolution in the early morning hours.
Lauinger and Sellinger will remain open throughout the night.  We expect both Leos and Yates to open on-time; however, this is dependent on current weather conditions.  Please consider using either Yates or another residence hall should you need access to shower facilities.
We will announce the University operating status between 5 and 6 AM.  You can find this information by calling either 687-SNOW or checking on the main Georgetown web page.
If you need assistance this evening, Student Affairs will remain open until 11 PM.  You can reach Student Affairs at 687-4056.  After 11 PM, you can contact the RA On Duty at (202) 288-9035.
