The University will close from 22 December until 1 January
The University will be closed for eleven days over Christmas. The break is made up of two weekends, three bank holidays and four closure days. You need to use time from your annual leave entitlement for the bank holidays and closure days.
Annual leave and Christmas closure
Full-time employees have an entitlement to 38 days leave, made up of eight bank holidays and 30 days annual leave. The 30 days annual leave is normally split between 27 days to be taken by arrangement with your manager and three closure days that fall over the Christmas/New Year period. However in some years - as in 2018 - the University will close for four days.
Staff who are not at work because it is a public holiday or closure day need to to take that time from their annual leave entitlement.
