Rutgers resumes classes on Cook/Douglass campuses

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Power has been restored on the Rutgers University Cook and Douglass campuses.

Classes are resuming Thursday after a series of power outages on Wednesday canceled some classes and closed some buildings on its main campus in New Brunswick.

The outages on the Cook/Douglass campuses affected about 90 buildings, including 39 residence halls. As many as 3,000 students had to sleep on cots in a gym.

It’s not clear what caused the power problems.

All other Rutgers’ campuses were open and operated on normal schedules.
