Christmas/New Year Period 2017/2018

For 2017/2018 the University has elected to fix the 2 ½ days leave as follows:


22 December 2017 (1/2 day PM)


27 December 2017


28 December 2017


In addition it is proposed that the University closes:


29 December 2017


This closure is not a contractual entitlement in the 2017/18 holiday year and creates no precedent in terms of holiday entitlement for future holiday years.

A further bank holiday is held on Monday 1 January 2018.

The University would therefore be closed from Friday 12 noon, 22 December 2017 -  Monday, 1 January 2018 inclusive and re-opens on Tuesday, 2 January 2018.
