On Friday, August 15 Columbia University is closed due to the power loss that disrupted electrical service in the New York City area. All Columbia University academic and administrative buildings are closed for the day. While power has been restored in most areas, only essential personnel should report to work.
Students in residence halls are being accommodated in their rooms and University personnel continue to provide essential services. Critical research facilities continue to operate on both the Morningside and Health Sciences campuses. The University may experience interruptions in phone and network (i.e. email and web) services due to the power outage, but we will continue to staff information lines. For Morningside campus the number is 212-854-1754; and for the Health Sciences campus the number is 212-305-7300.
The University expects to return to its normal schedule on Saturday, August 16.
