Ohio university to close for winter holidays

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The University of Toledo in Ohio will close campus buildings during the winter holidays.

The Blade (http://bit.ly/2pVBCB7 ) reports the university will save about $250,000 by closing buildings the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Most of the savings is expected to come from reduced utility costs.

The decision comes at a time when the proposed state budget includes a slight increase in education funding and a two-year tuition freeze. Officials say it's too early to estimate what the university's budget shortfall will be for fiscal 2018.

Many students and faculty already leave campus during the winter semester break. The new policy will give most employees an additional three days off with pay.

The new winter break policy was unanimously by university trustees.
