Reminder: Christmas and New Year closure dates

17 Nov 2021

A reminder of the closure dates over the Christmas and New Year period for your diaries

Christmas and New Year closure dates

Following our message from Banji Adewumi, Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and Adèle MacKinlay, Director of People and Organisational Development, we'd like to remind you of the Christmas and New Year closure dates.

Colleagues will have an additional day of leave over the festive period.  Our Christmas and New Year closure period will begin on Thursday, 23 December, so our last working day will be Wednesday, 22 December.  We will return on Tuesday, 4 January 2022.  You can find full details of the Christmas and New Year closure period on StaffNet.  The annual leave calculator has been updated to incorporate this additional day of leave.

We recognise that some of our colleagues continue to work on a rota or shift basis over Christmas and New Year, looking after those students who choose to stay with us and ensuring that essential facilities on campus are maintained. If you’re one of these colleagues please be assured that you will still receive an extra day of leave even if you can’t take it on 23 December 2021 – please speak with your line manager about making arrangements to take your extra day.
