UCL's University Management Committee (UMC) have extended UCL's Christmas closure by one day, in recognition of our community's hard work over a difficult year.

UCL's Christmas closure will therefore now run from 5.30pm on Wednesday, 22 December 2021 to 9am on Tuesday, 4 January 2022.

If you have already booked 23 December as leave with MyHR then please do not cancel this yourself as HR Services will complete this process for you and the hours for this date returned to your leave balance.

If you have booked 23 December as part of a extended leave booking (i.e taking leave from 21 December through 5 January) then please arrange to cancel this booking yourself and rebook these dates as required.

23 December will be added to MyHR as a Company Closure Day later today and will not be available to book.

In line with the above, we have also moved forward the December salary pay date to Wednesday 22 December 2021.

We hope that you all have a peaceful, happy and safe break when the time comes.
