Capital Construction and Maintenance Projects

***** Campus-Wide Power Outage *****


In order to accommodate the new electrical infrastructure project and resident hall project,

it will be necessary to shut off the power throughout the entire campus for a minimum of 12 hours. 

The time table for the underground electrical duct bank project is on a Sunday night to Monday morning.  This will alleviate the electrical impact of major operations on campus.

Construction Timeframe:

Beginning Date: Sunday – June 16, 2013 6:00 p.m.
Ending Date: Monday – June 17, 2013 6:00 a.m.

*** If additional time is necessary on Monday morning, June 17, 2013, you will receive an MU|Alert notification. ***

If you are not already registered with MU|Alert, please go to https://mualert.millersville.edu to register.
