University Statement--Power Outage on Rose Hill CampusContact: Brian Kluepfel
Flooding on Fordham’s Rose Hill campus on Friday, March 2 at 7:30 a.m. caused power outages to two University buildings. The Finlay residence hall and Thebaud Hall were evacuated without incident. Emergency generators will supply power to Finlay Hall and Thebaud Hall until necessary repairs have been made.
All Finlay Hall residents are being contacted by the University’s Office of Residential Life to coordinate any needed assistance. Class schedule was unaffected, and University’s operations staff, Con Edison and University vendors are working together to resolve the problem.
