University desk diary

(26 January 2018)

Governance and Executive Support has previously produced a paper-based University desk diary containing dates of University-wide meetings/events which are also detailed in the University's electronic Almanac. A decision has now been taken to cease production of the University desk diary.

We will no-longer be producing these paper diaries for the following reasons:

  • The need to move to more environmentally-friendly alternatives
  • The prolific use of electronic calendars
  • Paper copies are only accurate at the time the information is supplied to us. Many dates change throughout the year and the electronic version is kept up-to-date with these changes 
  • It is possible to download the electronic Almanac to your Outlook calendar.

We appreciate that some individuals still prefer paper diaries so we hope that informing you at this time will allow you to make alternative arrangements for the next academic year.
