University Holidays

The university holiday schedule for all regularly appointed staff personnel is as follows:

  • New Year's Day
  • Martin Luther King's Birthday
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Day after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day

Note: When a holiday falls on a Saturday, it is usually observed the Friday before; when a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is usually observed the following Monday.

Four additional holidays will be determined each year by Rutgers, usually during the end of the winter holiday season.

If you choose to observe a religious holiday, you may charge that day to other paid time off such as Administrative Leave (AL) or Personal Holiday (PH) time.
