You should arrive approximately 1 hour before the commencement of your ceremony at the reception tent on Whitfeld Court (next to the reflection pond outside Winthrop Hall). Ceremony start times are listed on the Graduations website and also in studentConnect.

Your guests will need to be seated no later than 30 minutes before the commencement of the ceremony. Entry into Winthrop Hall and the Live Streaming venue is unreserved and by ticket only.

Formal proceedings will commence at the nominated time of your ceremony and the duration of the ceremony will be approximately 1 - 2 hours depending on the number of graduands graduating.

Light refreshments and photography/framing services are available after the event.
