Planned telephone services outage

UAF Telephone Services will be interrupted on Sunday, March 9 from 8–10 a.m. Telephone Services staff plans to install emergency power lines and this will cause a power outage to all telephone lines to and from the Fairbanks campus. However, users should be able to call from one campus phone to another. This will affect all campus telephone lines, including circuits going to the Geophysical Institute, Alaska Satellite Facility, the National Weather Service, Video Conferencing Services audio feed, the University Bookstore and others.

Phone calls to off-campus locations, local and long distance could be dropped. Short outages may also occur in the Bowers Building and University Park Building.

In an emergency, please call 911. The outage will not affect the emergency blue-light phones. University Dispatch will still be available for non-emergencies at 474-7721 by dialing from campus phones.
