Religious Observances

Please see the Faculty Center’s handout for commonly observed holidays and their dates through 2020. For a more complete listing of religious holidays observed by diverse individuals and groups, please consult calendars provided by independent groups such as Interfaith Calendar and These may serve as starting points to assist with scheduling meetings, activities, and events that are open and available to as many individuals in the UCF community as possible. Not all holidays listed on the linked sites necessarily require accommodation. Please consult them and share with others who engage in scheduling and planning functions.

For those considering requests to accommodate religious observances on workdays, please see the following document on the UCF EO/AA website:

Note to faculty considering requests from students: the period of observance may include reasonable local travel time to a site for observance. It need not include time for travel chosen personally for observance outside the local area.
