In April 2014, UC's Board of Trustees amended University Rule 3361: 30-31-07 to establish a period of Winter Season Days to allow the university's campuses to close on the days not currently established as holidays generally between December 25 and January 1. The revised rule is effective as of December 24, 2014. Based around the holiday calendar, the 2015-2016 season days will be December 28, 29, 30 and 31, 2015, as outlined in the calendar below. The university will re-open for normal operations Monday, January 4, 2016.

This page outlines schedules for services and facilities throughout the period. The FAQ pages include detailed information on popular topics related to Winter Season Days. If you have additional questions, please send them via email to HROneStop@uc.edu.
