Convocation Tickets


Graduating students attending the Convocation Ceremonies are required to reserve a ticket for entrance to the Orpheum Theatre. In addition to the graduand ticket, graduating students can order a maximum of two guests tickets to their Convocation Ceremony. Please note that graduating students and guests must present either a printed or electronic ticket for entrance.

The final round of ticketing will open at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 11th  and will close at 11:55 p.m. on Friday, May 18th. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Graduands will be able to reserve up to two additional guest tickets, subject to availability.  Please note that you will only be able to order tickets for the ceremony that your program is assigned to. If you are unsure of which ceremony your program has been assigned to, please refer to the Ceremony Schedule.

Please use the appropriate link to order your tickets during the guest ticketing dates and times specified above:

The Convocation Team will assign seats and issue guest tickets to the Convocation Ceremonies by Wednesday, May 23, 2018. Tickets will be issued via email to the graduand. Please note that we will not be taking individual requests for seating assignments. 

Seating in the The Orpheum

Graduands and guests must bring either a printed or electronic copy of their ticket for entrance to the Orpheum. Graduands who reserved tickets will receive an email with the link to download the tickets for printing or saving as an electronic copy. Graduands are reminded to ensure their guests receive a copy of their tickets prior to the ceremony. Guests must be seated by 9:45 am for the morning ceremony and by 2:45 pm for the afternoon ceremony.  We cannot guarantee reserved seating once the procession has begun (15 minutes prior to the commencement of the ceremony). Latecomers will be seated in the back row during an appropriate break in the program.

Guests Needing Assistance to Access the Theatre

Guests who are unable to navigate stairs are encouraged to speak to an usher who will help guide them to their seat. The usher will guide mobility impaired guests to the best accessible route based upon the guest's current location.
