Power has been restored to several buildings at Wichita State University.

Just after 10 a.m., the lights came back at a large part of campus. Other buildings on the far north side of campus are still without power.


Utility crews are trying to locate the source of a power outage that's left much of the Wichita State University campus in the dark.

Power went out around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday.

According to WSU spokesman Joe Kleinsasser, some of the buildings on campus have backup generators while others do not. Classes are currently being held in rooms powered by generators.

Some of the other classes have been canceled. There's currently no word on when power will be restored.
