Today at UAlbany Returns January 4 Following the Intersession

In previous years, there has been snow during Intersession.

ALBANY, N.Y. (December 18, 2015) – Today at UAlbany takes a break for the holiday season and will return to circulation on Monday, January 4.

As the Intersession Energy Initiative begins on December 19, faculty and staff may be dressing in extra layers if planning to work in the office between the kick off and January 14, 2016.

Since 2008, the University has conducted this initiative and saved about $200,000 per year on utilities.

Similar to previous years, during Phase 1 (December 19-January 3), temperatures will be held at 55 degrees. During Phase II (January 4 through January 14), temperatures will be 68 degrees (same as during the academic year) and air handlers will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

More information is available on this year’s schedule.

Especially during Phase 1, employees are encouraged to wear warmer clothing and casual dress. However, as in the past, supervisors should be flexible for individuals who are uncomfortable because of the colder temperatures.

For more information, see the checklist on preparing for Intersession.

Answers to frequently asked questions about Intersession are also available.

Stay warm, enjoy the holidays, and see you in the New Year!
