Winter Holiday Closure 2018

Loyola University Chicago is excited to announce the gift of extra holiday time during December 2018. In the spirit of cura personalis, the University is committed to caring for the whole person as we take time to reflect, rejuvenate, and prepare for 2018. Please review several helpful items below regarding the 2018 winter holiday closure taking place December 24 thru 28.
Loyola University Chicago will be open during the week of December 17, 2018. Please note, Friday, December 21, 2018 is a regular working day.
The three University Closure Days are Wednesday, December 26, through Friday, December 28.
  • Similar to last year, we know that some staff members will be needed on campus to provide support during this week-long closure. Any staff member required to work during the three closure days, should work with their supervisor to schedule comparable time off 45 days before or after the closure days.
  • “Closure Pay”  does not count towards overtime. Actual hours worked and any designated University Holiday will still be counted toward overtime this week.   
  • Exempt employees will have December 26 thru 28 added as “Closure Pay” to their Kronos timecard for this pay period.
  • Hourly employees, or their supervisor, will need to manually select  “Closure Pay” from the pay code list within KRONOS for each closure day (December 26 thru December 28).
The 2018 University Christmas Reception will take place on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 from 2:00PM - 4:00PM in the Damen Student Center at the Lake Shore Campus.
