A power feeder malfunction occurred around 4:45 p.m. Saturday, causing 13 buildings on Notre Dame’s campus to lose power, University spokesperson Dennis Brown said in an email.
This is the second power outage of the day, with an earlier outage occurring at 12:25 a.m. from the same cause. The malfunction affects 13 buildings, five of which were residence halls.
According to an email from the University, affected residence halls are Carroll, Alumni, Lyons, Dillon and Pangborn. Other areas without power include Columba Hall, Sacred Heart Parish Center, Rockne Memorial, Notre Dame Golf Course, Holy Cross Annex, West Lake Hall and road lighting on St. Mary’s Road between campus and Indiana 933.
“University utilities personnel and electricians are working to correct the issue as soon as possible,” the University email said. “However, there is currently no estimated time for when power will be restored.”
