Convocation Ceremonies 2019

This year the convocation ceremonies will be held on Thursday, June 20, and Friday, June 21, 2019. 

All Convocation Ceremonies will take place at The Orpheum at 601 Smithe Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 3L4.

Attending the Convocation Ceremonies

Guests are invited to enter through the 601 Smithe Street entrance. The doors will open at 9:00 am for morning ceremonies, and 2:30 pm for afternoon ceremonies.

Guests must bring either a printed or electronic copy of their ticket for entrance to the Orpheum. Vancouver Civic Theatres requires that all audience members, including children, must have a ticket. There are no exemptions to this policy regardless of the child’s age.

Guests must be seated by 9:30 am for the morning ceremony and by 3:00 pm for the afternoon ceremony. Guests who arrive after the procession has begun will be seated by theatre staff when there is an appropriate break in the ceremony (if space permits). Guest seating is unassigned, general admission. We ask that guests stay in their seats for the duration of the ceremony. 

Please note, balloons are not permitted inside the theatre.
