Dental School Building power outage scheduled Friday, April 19


Facilities Management will be conducting a power outage impacting the Dental School Building on the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Campus at 7703 Floyd Curl Drive from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, April 19.

During the power outage, normal CPS Energy power will not be available throughout the Dental School Building. This includes spaces having an R, S, T, or U designation. All emergency-powered systems such as fire- and life-safety systems, red receptacles, emergency lighting, telecommunications and security systems will remain available.

Below are additional details about the upcoming outage: 

  • Those working in a space impacted by the power outage should power down computers and equipment not on a universal power supply (UPS) or battery.
  • During the transfer to generator power, there will be a 10-second delay for generator engines to start, so equipment such as a desktop computer not on a UPS, will need to be restarted the following workday.
  • Individuals requiring extension cords for emergency-powered freezers or any other critical equipment, can contact Jeffrey Patterson, MBA, construction manager, Facilities Management, at or 210-273-8750 or Raymundo Rivera, MBA, MS, P.E., CxA, executive director of engineering and construction management and chief electrical engineer, Facilities Management, at or 210-771-2662.
  • Parking lot lighting will not be impacted by the power outage.
  • For individuals in a space impacted by the power outage who will be using their computer in remote desktop mode, the computer will need to be turned on and logged into after the power outage.
  • UT Health San Antonio virtual private network (VPN) functionality will not be impacted, so placing work files on a server is a good alternate to using one’s remote desktop.
  • Facilities Management staff will be on-site throughout the power outage and the Facilities Management Building will be staffed for any in-person or call-in requests.
  • During the power outage, Facilities Management staff will be performing routine space reviews of the impacted spaces.
  • The Facilities Management 24-hour/365-day telephone number is 210-567-2880.

No other buildings or spaces on the Long Campus will be impacted. The Greehey Academic and Research Campus will not be impacted by this work.
