The summer hours, paid holidays and university closures for the 2017-18 academic year are displayed below.

Summer hours 2017

From June 9 to August 11, 2017, the university observes a summer hour schedule where many offices close at 1 p.m. on Fridays.

As June 24 and July 1 fall on Saturdays, the holidays are the preceding Fridays.  The summer hours for those weeks will take place on Thursday, June 22, and Thursday, June 29.

During these 10 weeks, the workweek is reduced by three (3) hours without any reduction in salary. 

Essential units

Managers of essential units that cannot close early are encouraged to make arrangements with their employees with equivalent time away from work, keeping policies, contractual agreements and operational requirements in mind. 

Such departments include the Security Department and Accounting and Restricted Funds.  The Webster and Vanier libraries will be open for study only during summer hours.
