Safety for our students and the broader campus community is our primary concern. We know that students without power may be uncomfortable, and we hope that the options provided will help support students until the power is restored. We will continue to monitor this situation through the weekend and will provide an update via Message Center between 2 and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

If you have an emergency, please contact Public Safety at 585-475-3333.
