Storm Damage Update

Ohio State's Columbus campus is open for business as usual, including the Wexner Medical Center. Some of our regional campuses are still experiencing power outages related to the recent storms. Both the OSU Newark and OSU Lima campuses will be closed on Monday due to a power outage. Newark and Lima employees should contact their supervisors for instructions. Campuses in Marion, Mansfield, and Wooster have power and will continue normal operations on Monday.

As you return to campus on Monday, please keep in mind that there still may be some traffic lights out around the Columbus campus as well as fallen debris. Traffic lights that are not operating should be treated as a 4-way stop.

The Office of Student Life RPAC facility will be open from 5:45 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. through Tuesday for all faculty, staff, and students who would like a place to shower. They are advised to bring towels and toiletries. Each person must display a valid BuckID or Medical Center ID to gain entrance. RPAC membership benefits remain unchanged, including family memberships.

For those campus community members in need of relief from the heat, please see this comprehensive list of shelters and cooling centers:
