As of 5:15 p.m. Friday, March 8, electricity was restored to all buildings on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. The last buildings to be powered back up were Etcheverry Hall, North Gate Hall and Soda Hall.

Shortly after 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, a major failure in one of the five campus electrical switching stations caused a campuswide power outage. Within six hours, power was restored to most of the buildings on campus.

For updated information, check the campus home page or call the campus utility hotline at 1-800-979-9995.
