Staff Holiday Information

University Closure

Every year the University expects its staff to retain a number of annual leave days to cover the University Christmas Closure dates. The number of days required varies each year as a result of when the Christmas Bank holidays fall. In general the closure requires between 3 and 5 days annual leave. A full set of the Christmas Closure days for the next 10 years are identified in the tables below. Publication of these dates is intended to assist staff in planning for current and future years.
