SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Power has been restored at San Francisco State University where an outage happened late Monday morning, school officials said.  

Service went out at the university at about 11 a.m. as part of a larger power outage that affected 2,400 San Francisco customers, Pacific Gas & Electric spokeswoman Fiona Chan said.

Power was restored at about noon for most customers however SFSU remained without power until power was restored at about 4:50 p.m. Monday.

The power outage affected areas south of Holloway Avenue to Randolph Street and between Capital Avenue and Beverly Street, Chan said.

It also affected the Lake Merced area, along Brotherhood Way between Lake Merced Boulevard to St. Charles Avenue, Chan said.

PG&E has been working closely with the university to notify students and staff about the outage, Chan said.

All classes on the school's main campus that were scheduled to start at 4 p.m. or later were canceled, and the downtown campus was not affected by the power outage.

Most business offices will stay open until their scheduled closing times. The One Stop Student Center planned to close at 5 p.m. instead  of its normal closing time of 7 p.m.

There have been no reports of injuries or significant damage, university spokeswoman Ellen Griffin said.

This power outage is unrelated to the loss of service in Pacifica.
