A number of buildings at Rose Hill lost power, and phone service and Internet connectivity were disrupted due to electrical problems this evening.

As of 8:30 p.m., the Public Safety emergency line, (718) 817-2222, has been returned to service.

The campus is still experiencing a power outage at the following locations—non-Public Safety telephones, and wired and wireless Internet connections are also affected:

Thebaud: Completely Out of Service

Alpha House/Tennis house: Completely Out of Service

Rose Hill Gymnasium: Completely Out of Service

Security Booths: Partial Service

University Church: Completely Out of Service

Emergency Blue Light phones: Partial Service

Finlay: Partial Service

Queens Court: Completely Out of Service

More buildings and locations may be affected as repairs are made. Electricians are on site and continuing to work to restore power to the campus, but we do not yet have an estimate for full restoration of service.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we resolve these issues.
