2015-2016 Holiday Closures

Find out about 2015–2016 holiday-related closures at UC San Diego.

Official campus closure

During the 2015 holiday season, UC San Diego (excluding the hospitals and clinics) will officially close for 7 days from Thursday, Dec. 24, 2015 to Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016. This closure will result in significant energy savings from reduced operations.

The closure period includes 4 paid holidays (Dec. 24, 25, 31, 2015 and Jan. 1, 2016) and 3 working days (Dec. 28, 29, 30). Staff employees must charge their time for the 3 working days to accrued vacation, accrued compensatory time off (non-exempt only), or leave without pay. Academic employees on fiscal year appointments must charge the time off to accrued vacation or leave without pay.

Non-represented employees who do not have accrued vacation or accrued compensatory time off to cover the 3 working days during the closure may request a one-time advance of up to 3 days of vacation to cover the absence. Non-represented employees who elect to take leave without pay for up to 3 days of the closure period will continue to accrue vacation and sick leave credits. For exclusively represented employees, these closure days will be handled in accordance with the existing contract provisions or collective bargaining where applicable.

UC San Diego departments and units that need to remain open during the closure period must notify their respective vice chancellors to do so.

See the campus notice for more information.
