Submitted by Marmian Grimes
Most offices at the University of Alaska Fairbanks will be closed for the winter break, Dec. 24 through Jan. 3. Many offices will also be closed or minimally staffed Dec. 21 through 23 as a cost-saving measure.
The UAF police and fire departments will remain open and the UAF Bookstore, the Student Recreation Center, the Wood Center, the UA Museum of the North and the Rasmuson Library will have limited hours during some parts of the winter break. Visit www.uaf.edu/marketing/holiday/index.xml for specific dates and hours.

Campus shuttles will not run Dec. 24-Jan. 3. Limited shuttle service will resume on Jan. 4. Visit www.uaf.edu/fs/shuttlebus.html for specific shuttle schedules.
