TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- All power has been restored at Arizona State University's Tempe campus.

Part of the campus was without electricity for about three hours Friday morning because a water leak damaged equipment at the central power plant.

An initial estimate had 80 percent of the Tempe campus without power, but spokeswoman Sharon Keeler says it was later estimated that only about 25 percent of the campus was affected.

Keeler says word of the outage was received at approximately 7 a.m.

The university is not now in session. Classes resume Monday after the winter break.

According to ASU, the following buildings were affected.

  • Sun Devil Fitness complex
  • Computing Commons
  • Physical Education east and west
  • Physical Sciences A-H
  • Mona Plummer Aquatic complex
  • University Club
  • Health Services
  • Fulton Center
  • Schwada Classroom Office Building
  • ASU Bookstore
  • Engineering Research Center A-G
  • Palo Verde East
  • Palo Verde West
  • McCord Hall

Shortly before 10 a.m., Keeler said all power had been restored.
