UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Power has been restored to Wake Forest’s campus this afternoon. All campus buildings affected by an earlier outage today have power now. Operations on campus have returned to normal. With the power back on, the card reader system in buildings has returned to normal operation.
Wake Forest’s Reynolda Campus has experienced a major power outage today and more than half of the campus buildings in the central and north sections of campus are affected.
Crews are working on site to identify the cause of the problem and restore power as quickly as possible. There is not currently an estimated time when power will be restored.
The card reader system in residence halls is also affected by this power outage, which means students, faculty and staff will not be able to access these buildings using their Wake Forest ID cards.
Those who need access to the following residence halls should contact University Police at 336-758-5591 (the non-emergency number): Davis, Dogwood, Efird, Huffman, Kitchin, Magnolia, Martin, North Campus Apartment Buildings 1-10, Polo, Poteat, Student Apartments A & B, Taylor, and 1210 Polo Road.
The power outage occurred around noon today. The University will provide an update when more information is available.
