I hate this! I prefer my trusty wall planner!

The A3 Wall Planner is downloadable here (login required). You can also purchase one during session from the Union shop on level 3 of Building 1.

Feedback please

We’re seeking feedback on the Learning and Teaching Staff Dates calendar so that we can make it more useful for UTS teaching staff. Please email with any comments or ideas.



  • Please note for those that are experiencing permissions issues we’ve just been informed by ITD that the shared calendar is buggy for Macs running the latest version of the Outlook desktop client. At the moment the only work around solution, is to view the calendar using the Outlook web app. If you follow the steps provided below to add the calendar it should work:

    – Log into the Outlook web app

    – Click on the Outlook tile

    – Click on the calendar icon in the bottom left hand corner next to the mail icon

    – Right click on the other calendars section

    – Click on open calendar

    – In the from directory text area type in ‘Learningandteachingstaffdates’

    – Click on the option with the blue icon of a calendar titles Learning and teaching staff dates

    – Click on open. This will add the calendar to your list of shared/other calendars

    We apologise for any inconveniences this may have caused and will keep everyone informed should there be a fix for this issue.

  • Thanks for this. It would be useful if the calendar said week 1 week 2 etc. I realise this would be difficult as there is Calendar A and B but just putting it out there.
