Holidays and University Closed Days

Dear Colleague

The arrangements for the Christmas/New Year period are detailed below, for both the University and for The Hive.

Traditionally, the University allows staff working on Christmas Eve to leave at noon without loss of pay. This will continue to be the case for this year and staff working on Saturday 24th December will have the option to leave work at midday. Where this is not possible and staff are required to work a full day, they will be entitled to compensatory time off in lieu.

Further details can be found on the HR webpages:
