Last updated 3/06/17

Winter close dates for 2017/18 recently approved by leaders will include three extra days off with pay for employees working in departments that close completely from December 25, 2017 through January 5, 2018. Regular operations are set to coincide with the start of the winter academic quarter.

Designated university holidays during the 2017/18 winter close are Monday and Tuesday, December 25 and 26, 2017, and Monday, January 1, 2018. Regular operations resume on Monday, January 8, 2018, with winter quarter classes beginning Monday, January 8, 2018.

School and unit human resources managers will communicate workplace closure logistics in fall quarter. As in previous years, Sustainable Stanford will provide guidance on individual actions to save energy through the Cardinal Green program.

The university holiday schedule has been adjusted to reflect the recently approved winter holidays and winter closure dates.
