Planning around short weeks and long weekends

It’s that time of year again! A time of short weeks and longer weekends. There are a bunch of upcoming public holidays, so here are our tips for planning around them.

Egg-stra Long Weekend

By now you might be noticing assignment due dates creeping up on you. What better time to consume copious amounts of chocolate eggs, for some much needed stress relief?

Many CQUni study locations, on-campus libraries and receptions will be closed for the Easter Public Holidays from Friday, 30 March, to Monday,  2 April, including Saturday, 31 March, and Sunday, 1 April.

The Student Advice Team (13 27 86) and IT Helpdesk (1300 666 620) will also be unavailable, as will other on-campus support services. Support services will resume as normal on Tuesday, 3 April 2018. Keep an eye on your student email for further advice about opening hours from your local campus.

We hope you enjoy a well-deserved break and some quality time with your family and friends.

Anzac Day & Labour Day

Anzac Day 2018 is also just around the corner, held on Wednesday, 25 April. All CQUni study locations will also close for this commemorative day.

After this, everyone will be back to the daily grind – everyone except our Queensland counterparts. If you are located in the sunshine state, please remember that Queensland study locations will be closed for the Queensland Labour Day Holiday on Monday, 7 May 2018.
