Calendar: Subscribe to the University's Payroll, Holiday, and Academic Calendars

This service is for faculty, staff, and students.

St. Thomas members can subscribe to the official university calendars directly from their account.

Instead of manually entering these dates into your Outlook calendar, you can subscribe to these published calendars that are automatically updated as events are added or changed. You can view and subscribe to published calendars from Office 365 using the directions below.

The following St. Thomas calendars have been published online in Office 365:

  • University Holidays
  • Payroll Calendar
  • Undergraduate Academic Calendar

  8. Check your calendar list in the left column for the new calendar


It may take several minutes before the subscribed calendar will be visible on your other devices.

If you are not seeing new/upcoming holidays, you may need to remove and re-add the calendar. People who synced an old version of the calendar may need to re-sync due to changes in the calendar configuration. After re-adding, you should see new events when they are added without having to re-add.
