Thanksgiving Break…Recharge and Be Ready for Finals

A fall foliage scene on the UF campus

Gators will go home this week to enjoy feasts, family, and friends. During the Thanksgiving holiday, the UF Computing Help Desk walk-in service pauses at 5:00 PM on Wednesday, Nov. 25. Service resumes at 12:00 PM on Saturday, Nov. 28. (Go Gators, Beat FSU!) For your convenience, limited phone call-back and email services will be available for urgent issues while the Help Desk is closed. UF’s libraries and labs also have reduced hours over Thanksgiving. In between fun and food, stay productive with some of UF’s virtual resources:
