The University of Minnesota, Crookston campus will be closed Thursday, December 23, 2010, through Sunday, January 2, 2011. During this time, most campus buildings and services, offices (including admissions and the business office), the library, the bookstore, and other spaces will be closed or unavailable.
This closure is a cost-savings measure adopted across the five campuses of the University of Minnesota and purposely scheduled at a time when campus activity is naturally reduced so effects of reduced services are minimized. Utility savings will be realized by turning the heat down in most buildings, and labor savings will be achieved through a three-day furlough for many employees. Nearly all employees and services will be unavailable during this time.
The campus will return to normal staffing and hours on Monday, January 3, and classes for spring semester 2011 will begin on Monday, January 10, 2011.
