Some University of Manitoba students got to have an extra long weekend.
A power outage forced the cancellation of classes Monday in seven buildings at the Fort Garry campus.
The buildings affected included:
- Helen Glass Building
- Biological Sciences Building
- Fitzgerald Building
- Wallace Building
- Education Building
- St. John’s College and Residence
- St. Paul’s College
The cause of the outage, which began Sunday and required students in residence to be relocated, remains under investigation.
As of 9 a.m. Monday, U of M staff said engineers were working to determine if the electrical failure was internal or a Manitoba Hydro issue.
The university said power should be restored later in the day and expected classes would resume Tuesday.
