University Statement--Rose Hill Power SupplyContact: Bob Howe
Sunday, March 4, 2007—UPDATE:
Regular electrical power will be restored by this evening to all buildings affected by flooding on Fordham’s Rose Hill campus. Since Friday, electrical power has been provided to the affected buildings by generators; power in those buildings will be briefly shut down this afternoon in order to switch back to normal service.
Power was temporarily lost to four University buildings at Rose Hill on Friday, March 2, because of flooding. University operations staff quickly supplied the affected buildings with electricity via backup generators, which have been supplying power since then. All affected students were contacted by the University’s Office of Residential Life, which coordinated any necessary assistance. Class schedules were unaffected.
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 15,800 students in its five undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx, Manhattan and Tarrytown, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
