The Vice-Chancellor has agreed that the University will close for the last working day before Christmas, Tuesday 24 December 2019.

If you have already booked annual leave on 24 December, this will be automatically adjusted in iTrent in the coming weeks and counted as a Discretionary Day.

The University will reopen on Thursday 2 January 2020.

Colleagues in specific essential roles who are scheduled to be in work to maintain our operations on 24 December will receive pay and lieu time based on Discretionary Day arrangements.

Director of Human Resources
