IGB Holiday Schedule and Building Information

December 24 - January 3

  • The IGB building will be closed December 24 through January 3. All exterior doors will be locked and all card access doors will require entry with a valid IGB prox card. Please take care when entering or leaving the IGB not to allow someone you do not recognize into the IGB.
  • If you notice any urgent building issues (water leaks, CT room temperature problems, etc.) please call 333-1216 for the Public Safety Dispatch Office. This number is answered by Public Safety during off-hours and they will be able to assist you. Emails sent to facilities@igb.illinois.edu during this time will not be immediately addressed.
  • IGB administrative offices will be closed December 24 through January 3.
  • IGB Shipping and Receiving will be closed December 24 through January 3. No packages or email will be received or sent during this time period. Do not place orders for any packages that will be scheduled for delivery during this time. If you have any questions related to shipping, receiving, or mail, please contact IGB Shipping and Receiving. If you have questions related to purchasing, please contact the IGB Business Office.
  • Array Cafe will be closed December 21 through January 3.
  • If you are in the building when it is closed, please turn off all lights when you leave your area.
  • "No parking" areas are still enforced when the building is closed. IGB bagged meters on Mathews and IGB dock parking spaces are permit parking only. Ticketing/Towing may occur at vehicle owner's expense if parked in non-assigned space.


Please be aware of the potential for ice forming on streets, sidewalks, and parking lots across campus. Using customary winter caution is the most important means of protection against injury. Also, look at the walkway in front of you frequently or even continuously, if necessary, when you suspect there could be slick spots. To report persistent areas of ice accumulation, please contact the Service Office, 217-333-0340.

I-Card Expiration Date

Please be mindful of the expiration date on your I-card.  If your card is scheduled to expire during the Holiday break, make plans to visit the I-card center soon to update your card.  If your card expires, your card access is automatically deactivated.

IGB Security Reminders

With the holidays approaching, please be reminded to take extra care when entering the IGB both via the exterior doors during off-hours and doors leading into secured spaces within the IGB at any time. Do not let unknown people into the IGB or secured spaces. Anyone needing access should be directed to Operations and Facilities for prox card or key access permissions. Be aware of people loitering around the doors and grabbing the door before it closes behind you to gain access. Absolutely NO doors should be propped open – this compromises IGB security.

We should all be observant of our surroundings and report any suspicious behavior immediately by calling 9-911 from a Campus phone.
