The lights are out at Lewis Towers.

Lewis Towers at Loyola University Chicago’s Water Tower Campus will be undergoing electric work during Easter break.

As a result, Lewis Towers will be closed from Thursday to Monday.

The Division of Facilities Management sent the following e-mail to all Loyola University Chicago students:

Loyola Community,

On Thursday evening, March 28, Lewis Towers will close for the Easter Break and not reopen until 6 a.m. on Monday, April 1, due to scheduled electric work by ComEd.

During this time, temporary power will be available for specific services that are identified as critical University functions. Emergency power for life safety equipment and lighting will also be available.

The Department of Facilities is asking all employees within Lewis Towers to shut off any electronic equipment that is feasible when you leave the building on Thursday.

For additional information, please contact Mark Feiereisel, Water Tower Campus facilities director, at 312.915.7625 or mfeiere@luc.edu.

Please note that all retail spaces in Lewis Towers, including the Loyola University Museum of Art, will be unaffected during the work.

Superintendent of Facilities
