Easter break: What’s open and when?

Most University services and offices will be closed for the Easter holiday, Mid-semester break and ANZAC Day public holiday from Friday 15 April, re-opening Tuesday 26 April.

Have a safe and relaxing break!

If you need help during the break, these services will still be available:

Academic Staff

Many of our amazing academic staff will be taking a well-deserved break over Easter. If you reach out to your Subject Coordinator (or any academic) over this time and don’t hear back from them, please don’t worry. Most academic staff will be back at work after ANZAC Day (from Tuesday 26 April) and will respond to you then. All staff taking leave will have an automatic reply on their emails which will include the details of their leave and any other relevant advice, so check this for more guidance.
