Technicians are checking all buildings and their systems, according to Facilities.

Original: A power outage is affecting several buildings Thursday afternoon at the University of Houston, the second time since Thursday.

The University tweeted the outage is caused by failed equipment. The last outage was due to a downed transformer.
