Stormy weather cuts power to parts of Bedford Park


Weekend storms have cut power to several building on the south ridge at our Bedford Park location.

Students and staff are advised that the following facilities will be closed on Monday November 14 while work is undertaken to restore power. This includes some buildings where essential activities are being maintained on backup power.

• Biology
• Biology Discovery
• Biodiversity
• Glasshouses, PC2 building and Aquaculture
• Physical Sciences
• Flinders Press
• URSSA book storage
• PFD Maintenance/Ops
• Earth Science
• Information Science and Technology
• Engineering

If studies or research are potentially affected people are advised to please contact their course coordinator/supervisor.

Staff who usually work in any of these buildings will not have access on Monday the 14th and should work from home or at alternative locations based on their supervisor’s arrangements.

It is expected the buildings will be returned to regular operation by Tuesday 15 November.

Meanwhile, inspections are underway to assess whether wind and rain may have destabilised trees or caused damage to campus facilities across our SA locations. Students and staff are urged to use caution and contact security on 8201 2880 to report any areas of concern, if they have not already been identified with hazard tape and/or signs.
