Brief Power Outage at Lower Townhouses

September 19, 2018

As part of the final stages of work on the new parking lot at the south end of West Campus Road, SFU Facilities will need to shut off all electrical power to the four lower Townhouses (PEN, QUA, QUE & SQU) on:

Wednesday, September 19th from approximately 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM.

We advise that you make plans accordingly during this brief power outage. Power should be available in other areas of Residence, such as the Dining Hall. As well, the rest of the campus will not be affected by this power outage. We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause and wish to thank you again for your cooperation.

The effect of the power outage on residents of the effected Townhouse will be:

1) Your unit will have no electricity

  • Wall sockets will not work
  • Refrigerators and ranges (stove top and oven) will not work
  • Electric lights will not work
  • Regular internet service will be interrupted. You will still be able to access the internet over the cellular network through battery-operated devices
2) Hot water supply will be limited
  • The system that heats water will not function during the outage. We recommend that you don't use your shower/bathtub during the outage. Dishwashing should be kept to a minimum.

3) The laundry rooms will be out of service

4) Have a cell phone?  Remember to fully charge your cell phone the night before, as your charger will not work during the power outage 

5) The fire alarm system will remain fully functional


Residence and Housing Front Desk is Now Open 24/7

August 2018

We are always looking for ways to serve you better, so from now on the Residence and Housing Front Desk (below the Dining Hall) will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
