Scheduled to begin on June 30, 2014, the CSU campus will undergo a series of updates
to the switchgear, a vital part of the electrical system that powers the campus. This
will require several buildings on campus to be shut down at various points. In order
to minimize the disruption caused by these shutdowns, they will be done in sections
and staff from each building will be reassigned to different locations on campus.
Switchgear is a vital part of the overall electrical system on campus. It is the combination
of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect
and isolate electrical equipment.
The switchgear is a vital component of maintaining a stable and consistent electrical
supply. Campus buildings require a great deal of energy to operate, from lights to
computers to heating and air conditioning to sound equipment, etc. The current switchgear
system at CSU is out of date, and the update is necessary to ensure that our electrical
supply is stable in the future.
The schedule is to be determined.
Lot A17 on the southeast side of the Residence Hall will be closed off for the duration
of the update. All other parking lots will be open.
All classes will have adequate space to convene as they normally would. In most cases,
the changes in location are already reflected on the class schedule. However, we encourage
each student and faculty member to check this page regularly for updates.
Dining services will continue as scheduled without interruption.
Yes, as each building shuts down, arrangements have been made to have all faculty
and staff advisors available to students as they normally would be. Please check this
page regularly for updates on where to go if your advisor is housed in a building
that is temporarily shut down.
All student services will be available to students throughout the duration of the
shutdown. We encourage each student to make appointments through the internet at www.csu.edu. Please check this page regularly for schedules of where services can be accessed
when their normal office is unavailable.
The library will not be shut down at any time and will operate on normal hours.
No, Students who are scheduled to be in the residence hall this summer will remain
