Tickets and seat allocation

Sunny campus full of people

Guaranteed tickets

Two guest tickets are guaranteed for each graduand attending if requested at the time of registration. This is in addition to your own ticket of admission as a graduand. These two guest tickets are only guaranteed if you request them when you register for graduation and your registration is received by the deadline of Friday 22 April 2022.

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 your university email week commencing Monday 6 June 2022. We cannot specify what time the email for your particular ceremony will be sent.

Downloading tickets

Your e-ticket (containing seat numbers for you and your guests), along with your statement of final results, will be available via myResults on Friday 8 July 2022 from 2.00pm.

On your statement of final results, you will see a link to 'Graduation Information'. Your e- ticket will show the seat numbers allocated to you and your guests and will be required on the day in order to gain entry to the ceremony. You will need to download this information; you can either print it out or bring it with you on an electronic device. Please also provide your guests with copies of the information.

Special seating arrangements

Please inform us of any specific access requirements or special assistance you or your guests may need, e.g. printed material, hearing loop etc, by completing the relevant section of the graduation registration form.

**Please note: once tickets have been allocated we may not be able to accommodate special arrangements but we will do our best to meet these requirements**

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


Due to the length and formal nature of proceedings we do not recommend bringing young children to the ceremony. Children over the age of three will require a ticket for the ceremony. You may wish to watch the ceremony live in the Auditorium in the Students' Union, where the atmosphere is informal and no tickets are required.

Due to health and safety restrictions, prams should be left in the complimentary cloakroom in the Octagon.

Children are not permitted on to the platform at any time.
