Most UA offices to close for winter break
Dec. 16, 2020
Most offices at the University of Alaska will be closed for the winter break, Dec. 24, 2020, through Jan. 1, 2021. Many offices will also be closed or have reduced hours from Dec. 21-23.
Some offices and public venues will only close during parts of the break. The first day of classes for the spring semester will be Monday, Jan. 11.
Four days of the winter closure period are paid holidays: Dec. 24, Dec. 25, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Three days of the winter closure period — Dec. 28, 29 and 30 — are not paid holidays. On those days, employees will need to take leave, furlough (if appropriate), or leave without pay. Likewise, employees who choose to participate in the soft closure period will need to take leave, furlough (if appropriate) or leave without pay.
