Stanford University Winter Closure

Winter Closure 2017

The 2017 winter closure will be from Monday, December 25, 2017, through Friday, January 5, 2018. Regular operations will resume on Monday, January 8, 2018.

This year, for areas that close for the entire period of December 25, 2017 through January 5, 2018, the University will provide three (3) additional days off with pay. For the other regular workdays during the winter closure that are not designated by the University as holidays or a paid day off, employees may use accrued vacation time, any available PTO, approved time off without pay, or any combination thereof. The holiday period paid days off are only for use during the winter closure. Employees in departments that do not close for the entire period will not receive the additional University-provided three paid days off.

The following dates have been designated as University holidays:

  • Monday, December 25, 2017
  • Tuesday, December 26, 2017
  • Monday, January 1, 2018

The Law School’s Human Resources office will consult with employees about their time off as we approach the winter closure.
