Almanac

The Almanac is an academic year calendar of key University dates, providing semester dates as well as meetings of key governance and management committees including the Executive Board, Council and Senate. A separate listing of special University events is available here.

The Almanac is available in several different formats:

1. Almanac Outlook Calendar

From their campus desktop Microsoft Outlook University staff can open other users’ folders for which they have appropriate permissions. All staff have “Reviewer” access to the Calendar folder of the user “Almanac” that appears in the global address list (updated 09 June 2017).

2. Almanac Diary

If you wish to have a hard copy of Almanac dates in chronological order, the  Almanac Diary is ideal for printing in A5 booklet format (PDF file).
