UPDATED: Full Campus Power Shutdown Notice – Saturday, August 21

Please be advised, the College’s original power shutdown date of August 14 was rescheduled to August 21 due to scheduling changes with Seattle City Light (SCL).  

Here is the most updated information, including the impact on our computer networks:

Saturday 8-21-21, 7 AM to 3 PM, 8 hours 

Areas Affected: 
All building across the entire Shoreline Community College Campus will experience loss of power. SCL will be performing electrical work in building 9000. SCL will also be accessing the electrical vault in the East access road. 

Impact on Campus Technology Access: 
Technology Support Services (TSS) server and networking equipment operation will be maintained by backup generators. All web-based services are expected to remain online and available.

To perform required maintenance work on the electrical switch gear in building #9000. This will allow electricians to safely perform smaller localized shutdowns for the HSAMCC project and other future projects on campus. It will also help mitigate campus electrical outages or electrical gear failures in future. Eaton will be cleaning and testing the switch gear in building #9000.  

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
