Term and Vacation

Term and Vacation dates for 2020-21

During the vacation, items you have on loan should not be able to be requested and will continue to auto renew. There are a very few exceptions to this rule, but for example during vacations the University Library will still allow books to be requested and require them to be returned. 

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 borrowing starts: October 6th 2020
  • Christmas Vacation borrowing starts: December 1st 2020
  • Lent Term borrowing starts: January 19th 2021
  • Easter Vacation borrowing starts: March 16th 2021
  • Easter Term borrowing starts: April 27th 2021
  • Summer Vacation borrowing starts: June 15th 2020
