Office closure and Link schedule for holidays


The holidays are fast approaching! If you’re planning your winter getaway, read on for more details about the schedule for UCOP office closures.

UCOP offices will be closed from Wednesday, Dec. 24, through Thursday, Jan. 1, with winter holidays observed on Dec. 24 and 25, and New Year holidays observed on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, as follows:

  • Winter holidays (paid): Dec. 24, 25 and 31 and Jan. 1
  • Office closure (unpaid): Dec. 26, 29 and 30
  • Office reopens: Friday, Jan. 2, 2015

Eligible employees can use vacation, compensatory time or leave without pay to cover the three workdays during closure. If you haven’t accumulated enough vacation leave by December to cover those days, arrangements can be made to allow you to borrow against future vacation time.

Each department head may identify essential services that must be maintained during this period and plan for staffing accordingly.

Note that Link will be on holiday following the issue of Tuesday, Dec. 16, and publication will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 6. If you have any questions about the Link schedule, please contact Patti Meagher at
