MSU Denver

MSU Denver is proud to offer 13 paid holidays for employees in 2023 and 2024 as outlined below.

In order to best serve students and meet employee needs, MSU Denver subscribes to an alternate holiday schedule that exceeds the state’s identified number of holidays and incorporates observed dates. For example, while many other organizations observe President’s Day on Monday, Feb. 20, 2023, MSU Denver will apply that day off to Dec. 26, 2023 as part of an extended winter break.
