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 2021-2022:

  • Independence Day: July 5, 2021
  • Labor Day: September 6, 2021
  • Thanksgiving: November 25 - November 26, 2021
  • Winter Break: December 23, 2021 - January 2, 2022
  • Martin Luther King Day: January 17, 2022
  • Good Friday: April 15, 2022
  • Memorial Day: May 30, 2022

University Events

The University designates full priority to these events during the year and restricts all other events or functions from occurring on these dates due to size, scope, and logistical complexity.

Below are the University Events for the academic year of 2021-2022:

  • Founders’ Day: March 30, 2022
  • Award’s Day: TBD
  • Spring Commencement: May 12 - May 14, 2022

Event Advisories

Event Advisories restrict events from occurring due to the impact that large scale events will have on campus. During these advisories, there will be traffic delays on campus. Event Advisories are typically assigned to the Annual Jazz & Blues Festival and other large events. 

Below are the Event Advisories for the academic year of 2021-2022:

  • Jazz & Blues Festival: TBD
