Blackout Dates

University Holidays

Dates designated as University Holidays are based on the calendar published by Human Resources. No event, function or activity may take place during these dates except for religious services. Because we are closed, no support staff is available beginning at 5:00 pm the last business day before the holiday. If the holiday falls before a weekend, support staff will not be available until the first business day following the holiday. 

Below are the University Holidays for the academic year of 2022-2023:

  • Independence Day: July 4, 2022
