UVM Internet Calendars

Below are links to Internet Calendar files for the UVM Administrative Closures (formerly UVM Holidays) and the UVM Academic Calendar. You should be able to open these links in Outlook or Outlook for the Web, where they will appear as additional calendars that you can turn on and off.

The advantage of these files is that they can be updated periodically, and your calendar program should display the updated information.

If you prefer, you can use the "Save as.." function of your browser to download the .ics file locally. You can then import the calendar items directly into your main calendar. If you want the UVM Administrative Closures to appear on your calendar when someone tries to book a meeting with you, this is the method you will want to follow. (Instructions below).

Note: the downloadable .ics files just have the new events, to cut down on duplicated events. The Internet Calendar subscription files include the previous year's information, for reference.
