A Note about Upcoming Legal Holidays

UW‒Madison will be closed on Monday, Dec. 26, 2022, and Monday, Jan. 2, 2023, because the legal holidays of Christmas and New Year’s Day both fall on Sunday this year. When a legal holiday falls on a Sunday, the legal holiday is observed and UW–Madison is closed on the Monday following the legal holiday. Due to varying business needs throughout UW and some ongoing operations, some employees may be required to work on one or both of these legal holidays. Employees with questions may confirm their work schedules and time off with their supervisors.
