Humber College Lakeshore Campus’s L Building was closed Monday morning due to a power issue and all classes were cancelled.

A security guard said the building was being cleared for “safety reasons” and they did not know at that time when the building would reopen.

The guard escorted the students out of the building and said the college is “going to be looking into whatever the issue is.”

Students gathered outside in the rain and waited for further instruction from their professors before the cancellation of all classes in L Building. Power was also affected in nearby E Building.

“I’m just going to wait until my professor sends out an email,” said Noor Johal, one of the affected students. “It’s just such late notice.”

Humber College released a statement and put out a tweet concerning the power outage at 10:37 a.m. on Monday, telling students to contact professors for the status of their classes.

The tweet read: “L Building will be closed today due to power issues. All power will be shut off as of 10:30 a.m. Students should connect with their professors to determine if classes scheduled to take place in L Building are cancelled or will be rescheduled.”
