Vacation and days off

Everything you need to know about your fixed holidays and requesting leave.

  • Annual leave

    You are entitled to 232 holiday hours per year instead of the legally stipulated 160 holiday hours. If you are planning to take leave, visit the ‘Annual leave’ page to see out how many holiday hours you have left this year.

  • Surplus holiday hours

    If you still have some surplus leave at the end of the year, you can either carry it over to the following year, use it in the Selection Model or you can save it. The ‘Surplus holiday hours’ page contains more information about the conditions.

  • Request leave

    You can request your own leave in BASS. Your request will be automatically forwarded to your supervisor, who will review your request. When you request leave, you will need to first consult with your colleagues (and possibly with your supervisor).

  • Time off

    You are not required to work on public holidays when the university is closed. The ‘Time off’ page contains more information about the university’s collective days off.
