Ticketing is now closed. For any questions regarding tickets, please contact

Graduates and all guests must have a ticket in order to enter the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Each ticket has a unique code that can only be scanned once. Vancouver Civic Theatres requires that all audience members, including children, must have a ticket (printed or electronic). There are no exemptions to this policy regardless of the child’s age.

Seating in the Queen Elizabeth Theatre

It is important to ensure that guests have a copy of their tickets prior to the ceremony, as they will not enter the theatre along with graduating students.

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.

Please note that we will not be taking individual requests for seating assignments.

Student Assistance to Access the Theatre

Graduates who are unable to navigate stairs or have other accessibility needs are advised to email as soon as possible so that staff can arrange any necessary accommodations.
