USF suffered a minor power outage Thursday night, causing three intersections and three buildings to lose power.
University Police (UP) was alerted at 6:30 p.m. that some traffic lights were down, said Lt. Meg Ross. One person was stuck in the Laurel Parking Garage elevator, but no injuries or traffic incidents were reported. By 8:30 p.m., all electricity was restored, said Physical Plant Assistant Manager David Wilkerson.
The traffic lights were restored by 9:40pm, UP said.
The intersections affected were: Holly Drive and Magnolia Drive; Holly Drive and Laurel Drive; and Magnolia Drive and Citrus Drive.
The Psychology and Communication Sciences Disorders building (PCD), Central Plant – located across the street from the Contemporary Art Museum- and the College of Nursing (MDN) lost power. PCD was the only building to have its back-up generator turn on.
“The PCD generator is more sensitive than the other buildings,” Wilkerson said, explaining that the animal laboratory located in PCD causes the generator to come on more quickly.
The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center did not lose power, said Media Relations Coordinator Patty Kim.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
