Ceremony duration

The duration of each convocation ceremony is approximately two to two and a half hours. Out of respect for all ceremony attendees, graduates and their families are expected to remain for the entire ceremony.

Graduates are requested to arrive at the Tribute Communities Centre at least 90 minutes prior to the start of their ceremony. If you are driving to the ceremony, we recommend that you give yourself ample time to park.

After each ceremony, the Alumni Relations office will host receptions at the 61 Charles Street Building. This will give you an opportunity to mingle with faculty, staff, family and friends. Please return your gown and pick up your parchment in the lower level of the Tribute Communities Centre prior to attending the reception.
