Ohio University is open; unplanned power interruptions possible in Research Park area until Sept. 5.

Research Park on West Union Street continues to experience electrical issues related to work performed by AEP. As a result, there may possibly be periods of power interruptions throughout the next week (Friday, Aug. 29 to Friday, Sept. 5).
 
 
Further Information
Research Park on West Union Street, which will impact the Innovation Center, Bio-Chem and the MultiPhase Center, continues to experience electrical issues related to work performed by AEP. Facilities Management crews are continuing to work closely with AEP and are monitoring the situation hourly. As a result, there may possibly be periods of power interruptions throughout the next week (Friday, Aug. 29 to Friday, Sept. 5).
 
If interruptions occur, generators will kick on when power goes off to provide emergency lighting and some power to the affected buildings. The cooling systems will not be working during power interruptions, so the temperatures will be warmer than usual. If you have any questions, please call the Facilities Management Work Center at 593-2911.
