2011/12 Official University Shutdown

The University will be closed for shutdown from 21 December 2011 to 03 January 2012. The shutdown dates are determined by Management after consultation with the unions.

The average shutdown days are 8 or 9 days. In determining the shutdown period, consideration is given to the safety of staff travelling during the festive season.

The dates for the shutdown are determined in January each year.

Students looking for information about their results or exclusions should read the notice on StudentZone.
