On Holidays when classes are cancelled and employees have the day off, the campus is closed to all persons. No campus activity shall be planned on a Holiday without proper authorization from the respective Vice President, who will work with the appropriate office to assure adequate security & safety assistance.
On weekends when a classroom is scheduled for an event other than a class, an Event Form shall be completed and submitted to the Maintenance Office so arrangements for heating or air conditioning can be made. Even if no services from Physical Plant staff or other staff are needed, an Event Form shall be completed to assure that adequate heating or air-conditioning is available in the requested space, since air temperature in unused classroom space on weekends is normally adjusted to save energy.
