Access to roadways leading onto the University of Guelph campus will once again be closed to the public for a 24-hour period on New Year’s Eve.
The road closure happens annually at the recommendation of the university’s legal counsel in order to protect the university’s future plans. It will begin at 12:01 a.m. and end at midnight.
Staff working on university business may use the closed section, but members of the public attempting to use the roadways may be stopped by campus police, a news release said.
Most university offices were to be closed from Dec. 25 to Jan. 2, as normal business operations are reduced during the holiday period. Severe weather conditions, though, caused the university to close early – on Dec. 23.
Academic and administrative offices will reopen Jan. 2, and regular class schedules will begin again on Monday Jan. 6.
During the holiday period, campus police will continue to be open, the release said.
The Athletics Centre will also be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Dec. 27 to 30, it said.
The fitness rooms will close at 3:30 p.m. each day.
