Just as a reminder to staff, VIU will be closed on the following days:
- Friday, December 23rd
- Monday, December 26th
- Monday, January 2nd
The winter break period (Dec 27-30) is a holiday period for VIU employees, but the University will be open.
This means that some departments will need to provide coverage during this period. The following departments are required to have one person providing coverage each day during the winter break period: Admissions, International Student Services, Registrar, Inquiries, Student Affairs, Accounting, Information Technology, Facilities & Property Management, and each Academic School.
Any employee assigned to work one of the winter break days will receive a floating holiday to be used in its place at a later date.
