Cal State San Bernardino to be closed July 4-8 in observance of Independence Day


Cal State San Bernardino will be closed from Wednesday, July 4, through Sunday, July 8, in observance of Independence Day.

Flags_2Along with closing for the annual July 4 holiday, the campus also is closed on Fridays during the summer, which led to the additional closure day on Thursday, July 5.

The university will return to its regular four-day, 10-hours-per-day summer workweek schedule on Monday, July 9, at 7 a.m.

This is the 12th consecutive year the campus has operated on the revised summer schedule. Operating hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday.

Some offices remain open on Fridays during the summer, and University Police remain on duty every day.

The condensed workweek has helped the university reduce its energy consumption, while allowing the public more time to access university services during expanded hours Monday through Thursday.

In addition to the Friday closures, the campus will also be closed Monday, Sept. 3, in observance of Labor Day. The university will return to its traditional five-day work schedule on Monday, Sept. 10.

Cal State San Bernardino is conducting a 10-week summer school session that runs through Sept. 5, as well as two accelerated six-week sessions; the first runs through July 31, and the second session runs Aug. 1-Sept. 6.

The fall quarter will begin on Thursday, Sept. 20.

In addition to energy savings due to the Friday closures, the university also has encouraged conservation measures such as turning off lights in unused rooms, reducing lighting in hallways and turning off computers and other electronic equipment that are not in use.
