UPDATE (10/10 at 7:40 a.m.) PG&E has shut down power to the UC Berkeley campus. ALL classes are canceled for today, Thursday Oct. 10. Employees are encouraged to stay home unless they are critical employees.
During the power outage, many campus areas and buildings may be dark, which could make navigating the campus more difficult and raise personal safety concerns. For that reason, we encourage members of the campus community to not make unnecessary trips to campus during the power outage.
The campus is not closed, but services are limited. Many residence halls may be without power. Subterranean parking areas will be closed. Elevators should be avoided, and staff with mobility issues are encouraged not to come in to work for this reason. UCPD’s 9-1-1 dispatch center will remain fully operational during the outage.
Messages will be sent out via CalMessage and Nixle text alert systems once normal operations are restored. Until then, faculty, staff and students should continue to visit news.berkeley.edu for the latest updates. Also, campus telephone operators at (510) 642-6000 will be on call from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. with the latest information.
