UCLA will close for its annual winter break from Saturday, Dec. 22 until Monday, Jan. 1, 2019. The campus will reopen on Wednesday, Jan. 2.

For UCLA employees, the 11-day closure includes four university-paid holidays (Dec. 24, 25 and 31, and Jan. 1) and three non-holidays (Dec. 26, 27 and 28).

For information about using vacation days or compensatory time for those non-holidays, check out Campus Human Resources or this FAQ.

The annual winter closures have enabled UCLA to lower energy consumption and costs by reducing heating, cooling and ventilation to non-essential campus buildings. These services will, however, remain in effect at selected facilities during the break. The campus will maintain emergency response capabilities by UCLA police, fire and other incident responders, and Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center will be open. Find information on plans for particular facilities and services here.

The Luskin Conference Center and Plateia restaurant will be closed to guests beginning Dec. 16 and reopen Jan. 2. In addition, the UCLA Guest House will be closed to guests beginning Dec. 21 and reopen Jan. 2.

The Central Ticket Office telephone lines will be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 28, but the service windows will be closed during the campus break. On event days, the venue box office windows will be staffed 60 minutes prior to the beginning of the event.

If you have further questions about your department’s holiday-closure plans, contact your supervisor. For additional queries, please contact Anthony Solana in Campus Human Resources at asolana@chr.ucla.edu or Maure Gardner in Health Sciences Human Resources at mgardner@mednet.ucla.edu.
