Closure days around Ascension Day and on Whit Monday

28 May 2020

On Thursday 21 May, Friday 22 May and Monday 1 June most Leiden University premises are closed due to Ascension Day and Whit Monday. You have 21 May (Ascension Day) and 1 June (Whit Monday) off, without having to take leave, unless it's in the interest of the University that you do work. The number of hours that you normally would have worked on Friday 22 May are automatically deducted from your vacation credit. You don't have to do anything for this.

Access to buildings

If you need to work at the University during the holiday? Ask the reception if the building is open.


All Leiden University Libraries locations will be closed, including the current library books pick-up points.

Holidays and compulsory closures

The University has national holidays and compulsory closures. National holidays, such as Ascension Day and Whit Monday, are not deducted from your vacation hours, whereas compulsory closures, such as 22 May, are.

You can automatically add the national holidays and compulsory closures to your Outlook. You can find the instructions here >>
