Scheduled Maintenance to Academic Center Power System

Academic Center Commercial Power Outage: Planned Maintenance


The Division of Operations is conducting a planned commercial power outage at the Academic Center facility from Friday, July 12 at 7:00 am through Monday, July 15 at 12:00 pm. The extent of this outage will require that departments plan to telecommute and/or hotel elsewhere on campus, and it may require rescheduling of classes and/or meetings. We ask that you please communicate this outage timeline with colleagues who may be in the building during this time period.


During the outage main power to the building will be turned off, and emergency power will come on. The emergency power will operate exit signage, elevators, minimal hallway/classroom lighting, GWorld functions. No impact to GW IT telecommunications services is expected as generator backup power supports the CTSS hub site and associated HVAC at this facility. It is recommended that ALL electronic devices be plugged into surge protectors or unplugged entirely. Computers, laptops, cellphones, etc. can be susceptible to power surges. 


IT Support Center Walk Up will not be open during the maintenance event. Urgent needs should be routed to the IT Support Center at 202-994-4948 for escalation and dispatched support. Dispatched Endpoint Support will be available throughout the event as normal.


Please contact Division of Operations at [email protected] or 202-994-6700 with any questions.
