The University's scheduled holidays for 2017 are announced below.
As a reminder, departments may choose to close their offices during the winter holiday. Department Heads should let their employees know early in the calendar year if the department will be closed for the winter holiday so employees can save their CTO time to be used for days not listed below as official holidays. Department Heads are also encouraged to let Human Resources know if the department will be closed. We list department closures in a mid-December edition of the employee e-newsletter. This information is helpful to departments that remain open during the winter break.
Because undergraduate commencement is before Memorial Day in 2017, the University will be closed on Memorial Day (May 29, 2017).
