UCLA will close for a winter holiday break from Friday, Dec. 23 to Monday, Jan. 2, 2017. The campus will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 3. 

For UCLA employees, the 11-day closure includes four university-paid holidays (Dec. 23, 26 and 30, and Jan. 2)and three non-holidays (Dec. 27, 28 and 29); for information about using vacation days or compensatory time for those non-holidays, see this Campus Human Resources page as well as FAQs. Employees who normally pick up their paychecks will also find information at these sites about where and when to do so during the break or how to set up direct deposit to their bank accounts.

The annual winter closures have enabled UCLA to reduce 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 will also be closed during this time period. If you need campus accommodations during these dates, please contact the UCLA Guest House at 310-825-2923.

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.
