2017-2018 Holiday Closures

Find out about 2017–2018 holiday-related closures at UC San Diego.

Official campus closure

During the 2017 holiday season, UC San Diego (excluding the hospitals and clinics) will officially close for seven (7) days between Monday, December 25, 2016 and Tuesday, January 2, 2017. This closure will result in significant energy savings from reduced operations.

The closure period includes four (4) University paid holidays (December 25, 26, 2017 and January 1, 2, 2018). Staff employees must charge any working days during the closure period not covered by paid holidays 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 three (3) working days during the closure (December 27, 28 and 29, 2017) may request a one-time advance of up to three (3) days of vacation to cover the absence. Non-represented employees who elect to take leave without pay for up to three (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 agreements 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.
