Electrical circuits near the Math Building and Laurel Hall blew out around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, leaving nearby buildings and residence halls without power, said university spokesperson Stephanie Reitz.
A manhole cover outside Laurel was also blown out of its housing. No injuries were reported.
Reitz said Connecticut Commons, MacMahon Residence Hall and the Nathan Hale Inn lost power. Eleven other buildings, including South Parking Garage and the Co-op, were also shut down.
The UConn Co-op and four competitors will give proposals between Thursday and Monday to ultimately determine the future of the University of Connecticut’s 10 bookstores, according to the deputy chief of staff to the university president.
UConn outscored Memphis 41-20 and forced 13 turnovers in the second half as the Huskies defeated Memphis 77-57 to pick up a quality win on the road.
UConn students have colloquially referred to the path, a shortcut between campus and Celeron Apartments, as “The Rape Trail” for decades.
