Holidays

Academic and administrative buildings' are scheduled unoccupied over Holidays. This is the same way they are scheduled for weekends. A list of University recognized Holidays can be found at KU Human Resources.

KU academic and administrative building temperatures are carefully scheduled throughout the year to achieve the highest levels of personal comfort and energy efficiency. For more information on temperatures, visit Energy Policy.

If your department is considering a special event during a holiday, please be advised that the buildings list below will be scheduled unoccupied. When making room reservation, please consider hosting your event in an alternate building that will have the heat or air conditioning on (a building NOT listed below), in order to save energy and utilize the heating or air conditioning already provided.

If your department's special event is scheduled in a space listed below during a holiday, requiring the building to be scheduled occupied, please email energy@ku.edu or fill out the online form for a schedule change.
