We know that some of you will be coming in for limited, “on-call” time periods over the winter closure, but in general, whether you are gone for the whole duration or will be in the office for limited times, you’ll need to update your email auto responder and voicemail to reflect your status and whom patients should contact in case of an urgent matter.
We’ve also provided detailed information specific to our 800, 777, and Redwood City locations that you should be aware of for the closure. (Additional Cardinal at Work information can be found here.) I know it’s a lot of material, and we kindly ask you please read through it all.
For updating your Email:
- Log in
with your SUNet
- Manage à Email tab à Manage Autoreply button à set time range and away message à save
can also set this in your Outlook app/Outlook Webmail, if preferred.
- File à Automatic Reply à set time range and away message à save
For updating an away Voicemail:
- Hit the envelope button on your phone. Type in your PIN.
- Listen to voice prompts and either change your main greeting and change back when you return, or select option to change “other” greetings.
- Be sure to indicate an outgoing message of what dates you’ll be away and who they should contact if it is an urgent matter.

enforcement during winter closure:
- 800 Welch: Since the building’s parking
location is patrolled by the City of Palo Alto and not the University, all
regular meters and hours of operation will be in effect over the two-week
closure period. While PT&S acknowledged that there may be lighter
patrols than usual, if you park behind 780/800 Welch, you do so at your own
expense/risk. If you are on call/scheduled for patient care and need to
come in, your best bet is to follow your normal parking or commute routine
option. The CTRU will continue to issue patient parking permits to
patients only on the days the clinic is open. At other times, cars parked in
the patient parking without a permit might be in danger of ticketing.
- Refer to THIS MAP for additional
locations that will be enforced during the winter closure.
- Parking permit enforcement in ‘C’, ‘A,’ ‘C-SRWC’, visitor, and shared commuter/resident parking spaces will be suspended during the University’s winter closure from Dec. 21 through Jan. 5, with the exception of some parking facilities serving the hospitals, School of Medicine, and most residential and special zone parking.
