All UH campuses to close for spring break

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The University of Hawaii's 10 campuses will be officially closed to the public during the non-instructional days of March 21-24.

The closure, which is the university's normal spring break period, is in accordance with collective bargaining agreements and to recover energy savings to meet the budget shortfall.

Campuses will also be closed on Friday, March 25, in observance of Prince Kuhio Day, a state holiday.

Certain critical or time sensitive functions or specialized facilities, such as research laboratories, will continue to operate.

Athletic events at UH Manoa and UH Hilo will also be held as scheduled.
