University Student Union Provides CSUN Students with Free “USU Power Stations” for Charging Devices

November 30, 2017

Northridge — The University Student Union (USU) is constantly figuring out new ways to improve student lives and foster success. The new “USU Power Stations” are the latest additions to the Plaza del Sol in the USU, tackling the ongoing issue students face in finding a convenient place to charge their devices on campus. When you’re passing through the Plaza del Sol and you need a charge, just look under the red solar-powered CSUN umbrellas for a quick and convenient spot to charge up to three devices any time, day or night.

“It’s a common sight at CSUN to witness students in search of a convenient place to charge their laptop or cell phone, only to find that all the outlets are taken.” said USU Student Events Assistant Freddy Martin. “These new Power Stations are sure to be a great addition to the USU and make students’ experience that much more enjoyable.”

The “USU Power Stations” are powered by solar panels on top of the umbrellas and emit no carbon footprint. They are as fast as any standard wall socket and are also located with comfortable seating so you can study or eat while you charge!

Stop by the USU today and charge up your devices at the “USU Power Stations”! For more information, please visit or contact Technology Support Services Manager Alexander Gonzales at
