2021 Winter Break: This year, Brown will close at the end of the University’s normal workday on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, and will reopen on Monday, January 3, 2022. The scheduled University holidays during Winter Break are Christmas Eve (Friday, December 24, 2021), Christmas Day (Monday, December 27, 2021) and New Year’s Day (Friday, December 31, 2021). The remaining four Winter Break days (December 23, 28, 29 and 30) are not recognized University holidays, nor will they count against staff members’ vacation time. During this time, faculty and staff will continue to have controlled access to their offices and the network. Due to the time-sensitive nature of the work performed by many individuals, it will be critical for some offices to remain open or be partially staffed throughout the Winter Break.
The 2022 holiday schedule for non-union regular staff of the University has been approved. Please note that the University will be closed on Monday, June 20, 2022 in observance of Juneteenth and on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 for Election Day.
