Holidays and absence

UrbNet is obliged to register all absence (holidays, illness etc.). Holidays are registered in accordance with School of Culture and Society's holiday guidelines


If you are unable to come to work due to illness, please notify Mie Egelund Lind on the morning of your first day off and again when you are back. It is also a good idea to make an auto-reply on your email and note in your Outlook calendar that you are off sick.


You earn two types of holiday during your employment; the ordinary holidays and the special holidays. Below, you will find information regarding holiday accrual and registration at UrbNet. For more information, please also see here.

Ordinary holidays

You earn 2.08 ordinary holidays for each month of employment (up to 25 days in a year). Accrual takes place between 1 September and 31 August the following year. The holidays can be used until the end of December the following year.

You can take your holiday as you earn it from the 1st of each subsequent month after you have earned it. Main holiday (3 consecutive weeks of holiday) must be taken in the period of 1 May to 30 September in a given holiday year.

Special holidays

You earn 0.42 special holidays for each month of employment (up to 5 days in a year). Accrual takes place during the calendar year from 1 January to 31 December. Special holidays can be taken from 1 May to 30 April the following year.

Holiday registration

All holiday needs to be registered according to the CAS holiday announcement. If you do not wish to take holiday on the dates in the CAS holiday announcement (that you receive by E-mail each year), please inform Mie and Rubina (or your project manager/main supervisor).

Please ensure that your holiday periods are also shown in your AU Outlook calendar. We strongly encourage all employees to make an auto-reply while being away.

Holiday balance

You can keep track of your own holiday balance on mitHR.

Child care days

Employees with young children are entitled to 2 paid child care days per year up to and including the calendar year in which the child turns 7 years of age (16 days in total).
