OVCAS 2022 holiday schedule
Dear students, faculty and staff,
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services provides essential services to the university community and will remain open throughout the holiday period, although staffing will be reduced in some departments.

The Environmental Health and Safety Office will be staffed during the holiday break and can be reached at 312-996-SAFE if assistance is needed on a university holiday.

Transportation buses and shuttles will continue to operate as normal. The Semester Express bus will resume service at the start of spring semester in-person classes.
Before leaving your office, residence or classroom for winter break, we’d like to remind you and your department to turn off all lights, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, space heaters, fans, coffee makers, and other electronics and if possible, unplug or turn off power strips for these appliances. When left plugged in, the equipment needlessly consumes energy, which deters from the university’s commitment to reduce its energy spend and greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, certain electronics can pose a fire hazard when left plugged in and unmonitored. If you are unsure whether certain devices can be unplugged, please consult with your information technology staff or a UIC Technology Solutions representative.
Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy your holidays!
Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services
