The auditorium also has accessible seating. If you or your guests have any accessibility requirements, please contact Heather Dawson, 


Convocation rehearsal and ticket/gown pick-up

All gowns must be returned following the ceremony at the designated drop-off location in the Arts and Culture Centre foyer. 


Requesting extra tickets

Each graduate is allowed to request up to three guest tickets online. If you would like more please visit and you will be added to our waitlist. Extra tickets are not guaranteed – students will be notified the week of convocation if their request for extra tickets has been granted. 




While the university does not supply studio photography for graduates, an external company (Grad Images) will be on site to capture a photo of each graduate crossing the stage and one backstage shot. You will be given the option to purchase these two photos by Grad Images. If you require studio photos, we encourage you to book through an external location.
