Christmas closedown 2013-14 and 2014-15

6 September 2013

The University will close for two weeks this year and next year over the Christmas period. The dates of the closedown periods are:

  • 2013-14: from Thursday 19 December 2013 to Wednesday 1 January 2014 (inclusive)
  • 2014-15: from Friday 19 December 2014 to Friday 2 January 2015 (inclusive)

Staff will be granted three days concessional leave and are required to take three days annual leave to cover the period of the Christmas closedown each year.

The three days of required annual leave for this year have already been deducted automatically from leave balances. Staff should be planning their annual leave and discussing this with their manager to ensure leave is taken on a regular basis.

Further details about the closedown and how to manage and plan annual leave are available on the staff intranet. Contact your HR service centre officer if you have any questions.
