CS Department 2009 Holiday SchedulePosted Dec. 16, 2009
During the winter break, the CS Department Main Office will close on Thursday 24 December, and will not reopen until Monday 4 January. Most university offices will be closed as well during this period. The CS System Staff will be operating with reduced staff and on reduced hours.
During this period, the assumption is that few people will be working in the building, so the university will set the climate controls for cooler temperatures. If you do plan to work in the building during this period, you should plan to dress warmly. Other services, including lighting, water, and telephone service will work as usual.
Following the break, the dedicated air conditioner in the CS / Math Machine Room will be replaced. On Monday 4 January, cranes will install new equipment on the roof of the building, and the parking lot in front of the building will be closed that day. Over the next two weeks, the air conditioner, pumps, and cooler will be replaced, which may force the shutdown of some non-essential equipment for several days. However, departmental accounts, web pages, email, etc. should continue to function.
