Everything you need to know about tickets for guests attending your graduation. This information is very important as without their tickets your guests may be refused entry.
You are automatically allocated two guest tickets once you have completed the Graduation Wizard.
Information regarding the availability of additional tickets will be emailed to students in a separate email.
Please note that the number of additional tickets available for allocation will be in correlation to the remaining capacity in the Whitla Hall once all students have registered.
You can collect your tickets and gown from the Gown Store (located on level 1 of the Administration Building. Access to the store can be gained via the rear of the building adjacent to the car park)
Please note that you must bring your Graduation Reference Page with you for collection.
Your graduand seat is reserved, please refer to the board at the left hand entrance to the Hall for your specific seat number.
If your guests have been allocated balcony seats they will have an assigned seating number. However, ground floor seating is unreserved and is available on a first come first served basis.
Please note that the Whitla Hall does not have a lift. If your guests have special access or communication requirements, please specify this when completing the Graduation Wizard or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see the Student Guests with Disabilities section for more information and guidance.
If you are unable to get additional tickets for your Ceremony, guests can watch a live stream of the ceremony from the Student's Union.
What if my guests are bringing children?
Each guest, including all children, entering the Hall must be in possession of a guest ticket irrespective of age. Children in a pram/buggie do not require a ticket however their parent/guardian will be seated at the back of the Hall in an aisle seat. Everyone who steps onto the stage must be in academic costume and so children can not step on stage. We ask that parents/guardians take into consideration that ceremonies can be long depending on the amount of graduands.
