Gas Outage Notice

Dear USF Community,

A new gas leak has been identified in the driveway near the entrance to the first floor of University Center across from the new entrance to the Sobrato Center. PG&E responded and gas has been shut off while they work on the repairs. During the gas outage, hot water and heat to lower campus buildings will also be off, as will gas service to campus dining facilities in University Center. Please note the current adjustments to campus operations:

  • Food services have been moved to The Open Door Cafe on Lone Mountain.
  • Residential students in Hayes-Healy, Gillson, Toler, and Fromm who need to shower may use Koret Health and Recreation Center. During intersession, Koret is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
  • While gas is out, dryer units in lower campus residence halls are not operational.
  • If events in any areas need to be relocated, sponsors will be alerted of new locations.

Excavation of the site will begin shortly. As this gas line is a critical part of the campus infrastructure, work will begin immediately and continue until the leak is addressed and fixed. You can anticipate construction noise and lighting in the area during the course of the work. Please avoid the area of Main Drive between the University Center and Sobrato while work is being completed.

Please note: It is safe to remain in your building/room and to be on campus.

As further information becomes available, updates will be provided.
