Catholic University Christmas Recess

The Christmas holidays begin on Friday, Dec. 21, at the close of business and the university re-opens on Thursday, Jan. 3, at 9 a.m.

To conserve energy and to achieve cost savings, most buildings on campus will be completely closed. This will enable university staff to enjoy the Christmas break. If entry to buildings is absolutely essential for individual university faculty and staff members while the university is closed, they are advised to arrange such access in advance with their area or division supervisor. This is important for the reasons stated above, as well as for ensuring the safety and security of everyone who does have a need to be on campus while the university is closed.

To follow is a listing of what is closed and what is open during the Christmas recess.
