UNSW Shutdown 2018-2019

As many staff would be aware, since 2009 the University has shut down its operations over the Christmas/New Year period to minimise operational costs and to reduce the University's annual leave liability. The University intends to shut down again this year from the close of business on Wednesday, 19 December 2018, with the University to re-open on Wednesday, 2 January 2019.

How the Shutdown will affect you will depend on whether you are an Academic or Professional staff member. For information on what shutdown arrangements will apply to you, please click on your staff category.  

As with previous years, there will be an exemption process for employees who are required to perform essential and critical services during the shutdown, and some other limited circumstances.
