Tickets and seat allocation

Sunny campus full of people


You should select the number of guest tickets you require when registering for graduation.  A maximum of 2 guest tickets are guaranteed, along with your own graduand ticket.

Additional tickets
It is unlikely that tickets over the two guaranteed will be available. However, if further tickets are available, you will be notified via email in early June.

Downloading e-tickets
Your e-ticket (containing seat numbers for you and your guests), along with your statement of final results, will be available via myResults from 2pm on Friday 5 July. 

Special seating and accessibility requirements

You must inform us of any specific access requirements or special assistance that you or your guests may need in advance of the ceremony. There is a dedicated section of the registration form to do this.

Once tickets have been allocated, we may not be able to accommodate special arrangements but we will do our best to meet requirements where possible.

If you require the loan of a wheelchair for the day, visit your local British Red Cross Association


Children over the age of three will require a ticket for the ceremony.

Due to the length and formal nature, we do not recommend bringing young children to the ceremony.  Guests with young children may wish to watch the ceremony live in the Auditorium in the Students’ Union, where the atmosphere is informal and tickets are not required.

Children are not permitted on the platform at any time.
