Your graduation day checklist - what you need to do on the day.

On your graduation day you will need to...

  • Arrive on City Campus one hour and thirty minutes before your ceremony start time.
  • Register your attendance and collect your tickets and programme from the Newton building.
  • Collect your gown from Arkwright 006.
  • Have your photographs taken by Success Photography in Arkwright 011.
  • Collect or purchase any merchandise in the Newton building.
  • Make your way over to University Hall 40 minutes before the start time of your ceremony.
  • Ensure you and your guests take their seats in University Hall or the live-streaming venue at least 20 minutes before the ceremony starts. Doors close 15 minutes before the ceremony starts. Latecomers will not be admitted.
  • Head over to the Newton building after the ceremony, along with your guests, in order to enjoy post-ceremony refreshments which will be served for an hour.
  • If you did not have time for photographs before your ceremony, photography will still be available in Arkwright 011. We recommend you enjoy your post-ceremony refreshments before going to have your photographs taken.
  • Drop off your gown in the Newton building before you depart, before 6 pm.
