Campus will maintain normal operations for Thursday, Dec. 16.
Following an initial assessment of damages from Wednesday’s windstorm, CC’s incident command team recommends that campus activities continue as normal.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported. The Facilities Services team worked throughout the day and evening Wednesday securing buildings, clearing roadways and parking areas, ensuring fire alarms and other safety mechanisms are working, and boarding all broken windows.
Primary pedestrian pathways have been cleared, though there’s still much debris on campus. Power is back on in most facilities. Be aware of heavy machinery on campus throughout the day clearing trees and other debris.
Tutt Library is without power as of this morning; it will remain closed until power is restored.
Downed trees are still affecting part of Loomis Hall and Tutt Alumni House. Tutt Alumni House will remain closed until further notice; employees there should work virtually. Students in affected areas of Loomis Hall and two other small campus houses have temporarily relocated until downed trees are removed.
The incident command team expects to have a damage estimate and timeline for repairs by midday Thursday and will share that update when it’s available.
We wish the best to everyone impacted by Wednesday’s high winds.
Colorado College is a residential campus; essential personnel remain on campus 24/7 to support students. Report any safety concerns to Campus Safety: email@example.com or (719) 389-6707.
