Identification: If possible, bring your student card for quicker registration. If you no longer have your card, bring photographic ID and your student number.

Transport: Plan your journey and consider alternative transportation options, as parking near the campus is limited.

Accessibility: Contact the Graduations Team if you have specific access requirements. Lift access for guests will be available on the day.

Bag Policy: Avoid bringing large bags or rucksacks, as they are not allowed in Bute Hall. A bag drop marquee is located in the West Quad (behind the chapel) for storage. Note that bags may be subject to search.

General Information:

→ Ensure you arrive at the specified time; failure to do so may result in non-participation.

→ If you enroll for the ceremony but don't attend without prior notification to the Registry, your graduation will be considered in-absentia, and documents will be sent to your recorded home address in MyCampus.

→ Don't forget your student ID card; it's required for ticket collection.

→ The ceremony typically lasts 1 to 1.5 hours, depending on the number of graduates.

→ Please be aware that there are no cloakroom facilities on the graduation day.

We look forward to celebrating your achievements with you!
