trees and falling snowFinals week, while stressful and frustrating, does mean one very good thing: winter break is near. For most students, this means a whole month off, where you’re free to go home, travel, see friends and think about anything but classes. But those who live and work in Jacksonville may still find themselves needing to use campus facilities over the break.

For students who are going to continue to be on or around campus, during any part of this next month, here’s what you need to know:

The whole campus is shutting down for intercession from Friday, Dec. 23 to Monday, Jan. 2. The hours prior to and after those dates vary.

It’ll be closed on weekends and during the intercession, and will go back to the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. structure on Jan. 3.
