Annual leave 

Annual leave will be confirmed in your terms and conditions of employment.

Grades 2-5 attract 20 days of holiday, rising to 23 days after five years’ continuous service.

Grades 6-10 and Academic posts attract 27 days holiday entitlement.

Part time employees or those on a variable hour’s contract will be given a pro rata holiday entitlement.

In addition, there are normally eight statutory Bank Holidays and Royal Holloway’s discretionary six additional dates, shared between Christmas and Easter, when the university is closed.

The annual leave year runs from 1 August to 31 July.
