Amarel Users,

We just learned that all buildings on the Newark campus will be affected by a 20 minutes power outage sometime between 1:00 am – 3:00 am on Wednesday 11/17/2021.

We are still unsure how the outage will affect OARC’s systems in Newark (Amarel-N) and will provide updates as we receive more information.

Have a great weekend,
