There will be a power outage on the Long Campus, affecting the library from Friday March 28 at 6pm through Saturday March 29th 6am. The library will remain open during this time.

On Friday, June 28, 2024, Facilities Management will be conducting a 12-hour long power outage impacting the Long Campus (7703 Floyd Curl Dr.) During the power outage, normal CPS Energy power will not be available to the Long Campus Buildings being the Medical, Dental, Basic Science, ALTC, Holly, NUR, LIB, ALTC, AAB, FM, Print Shop, Warehouse, EHS, former HR Building, and the former Texas Star Café.

• If you are in a space that will be impacted by the power outage, please power down your computers and equipment that are not on an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) or battery.
• During the transfer to generator power there is a ~10-second delay for generator engines to crank/start so equipment such as a desktop computer, not on a UPS, will need to be restarted the following workday.
• Should you require extension cords for emergency powered freezers or any other critical equipment, please contact Jeffrey Patterson at pattersonj5@uthscsa.edu / (210) 273-8750.

• Should you be utilizing your computer in Remote Desktop mode, and you are in one of the spaces impacted by the power outage, your computer will need to be turned on and logged into after the power outage.
