Blackout Dates

University Holidays

Dates designated as University Holidays are based on the calendar published by Human Resources. No event, function or activity may take place during these dates as defined by the Administration, with the exception of religious services and University sanctioned NCAA Athletic games. Because we are closed, no support staff is available beginning at 5:00 pm the day before the holiday.

Below are the University Holidays for the academic year of 2021-2022:

  • Juneteenth, June 18
  • Independence Day, July 5
  • Labor Day, September 6
  • Thanksgiving, November 25-November 28

Tier 1 University Events

The University designates full priority to these events during the year and restricts all other events or functions from occurring on these dates due to size, scope and logistical complexity*.

Below are the Tier 1 University Events for the academic year of 2021-2022:

  • Welcome Week, August 20-August 29
  • Alumni Weekend, September 24-September 26
  • Open House, October 9-October 10
  • Family Weekend, February 10-February 13, February 17-February 20
  • Preview Day, April 9-April 10
  • LMU Undergraduate & Graduate Baccalaureate Mass & Commencement, April 30-May 11
  • Loyola Law School Commencement, May 12-May 16

* If you believe your event contributes to the mission of the Tier 1 event, resubmit your event request 30 days prior to your requested date for consideration. However, approval for your event is not guaranteed and an alternate date(s) should be scheduled to avoid conflicts. If your event is approved to occur within the Tier 1 blackout time frame, event support will be minimal.

Event Advisories

Event Advisories restrict events from occurring due to the impact that large scale events will have on campus. During these advisories, there will be traffic delays on campus. Event Advisories are typically assigned to the two permitted 5K races on campus on the day of the race and ASLMU's Fallapalooza event.

Below are the Event Advisories for the academic year of 2021-2022:

  • Fallapalooza, October 3
  • Think Pink 5K, October 17
  • Westchester 5k, March 13

Limited Student Support

Events can occur on campus during dates designated as Limited Student Support dates, but clients should be aware that limited support is available and longer setup times may be necessary to accommodate certain requests. Limited Student Support time frames include times when we may not have our full student staff available, such as Finals Week or Spring Break etc. Limited Student Support Blackouts will typically fall on any time frame when classes are not in session.
