As a unit that provides essential services to the university, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services will remain open throughout the holiday period, although staffing will be reduced in some departments.

Transportation buses and shuttles will continue to operate as normal. The Semester Express bus will resume service at the start of spring semester in-person classes.
During the holiday period, we’d like to remind you and your department to turn off all lights, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, space heaters, fans, coffee makers, and other electronics before leaving the office and classroom for winter break. Also, please unplug or turn off power strips for these appliances, if possible. When left plugged in, the equipment needlessly consumes energy, which deters from the university’s commitment to reduce its energy spend and greenhouse gas emissions. What’s more, certain electronics when left plugged in and unmonitored can pose a fire hazard. If you are unsure whether certain devices can be unplugged, please consult with your information technology staff or a UIC Technology Solutions representative.
Wishing each of you a safe, healthy and happy holiday season,
Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services
