Planned Power Outages at Bedford Park during April

A temporary high-voltage power shut-down is required in some campus areas during April, as part of connection works for the Health and Medical Research Building. This work will involve two x 60-minute campus outages, anticipated for:

  • 7-8am, Saturday 15 April

  • Law & Commerce
  • Social Sciences South
  • Pendopo
  • Social Sciences North

  • Oasis
  • Drama Centre
  • Matthew Flinders Theatre

During the weekend of April 15-16, there may also be further power outages to buildings on the North and South Ridges, due to load shedding requirements.

Please note: 

  • The power outages will affect lifts across North Ridge. Please call Security on 8201 2880 for access assistance.
  • Please make people in your areas aware of the outage. Signs will be posted in the coming weeks.
  • Please consider any booked events (such as functions, sports events and classes held by external parties) and contact organisers to arrange alternatives or postponement.
  • If relevant, please clarify with staff which power sources are on a back-up generator (for example: red vs white power switches).

We are working to minimise disruption to the campus during this time. Backup generators will be provided to Flinders Living during the two x 60 minute shutdowns to reduce impact on student accommodation.

Please contact HMRB@flinders.edu.au or lodge a Service One request if you have any events or power-sensitive equipment or research that would be affected during these periods.
