Term and Vacation

Term and Vacation dates for 2022-23

During the vacation, items you have on loan should not be able to be requested and will continue to auto renew.

Changing from term to vacation and vice versa happens on Tuesdays by 9.00 am. The dates for this next year will be:

  • Michaelmas Term - exception to the rule - recalls will be switched back on Friday 30th September 2022
  • Christmas Vacation - starts 29th November for most libraries
  • Lent Term - starts January 17th for most libraries
  • Easter Vacation - starts March 14th for most libraries
  • Easter Term - starts April 25th for most libraries
  • Summer Vacation - starts June 13th for most libraries

There are a very few exceptions to this rule- for example at the University Library, requests are still permitted over the Summer Vacation.
