It was a dark weekend at Quinnipiac University in Hamden after a transformer left several residence halls without power. The issue began on Friday night and lasted through Saturday when two of the halls remained without electricity through most of the day.

Early on Saturday a university spokesperson for the school said the issue started on Friday night effecting several hundred students.

Students were advised to stay with friends who had electricity or take a bed in an unassigned room . Recreational centers was set up as temporary shelters as crews worked to resolve the issue.
