The west side of campus experienced a power outage overnight. At this time, power has been restored to all buildings, including Deering Hall. Deering Hall is open and classes in the building starting at noon or later will be held today.

As repairs continue on UMaine’s power system, ongoing energy conservation efforts are required campuswide.

We ask that you help us minimize electrical expenditure this week by turning off lights, equipment and devices when not in use.  While we fully understand that some individuals and facilities will not be able to reduce electrical consumption, we do ask that you unplug or turn off unused and nonessential electrical loads where practicable.

Thank you for your cooperation during this short-term inconvenience.
