Ticket information

We are now pleased to provide e-tickets. All Convocation tickets and parking passes are now paperless.

Please note if you register after the deadline we cannot guarantee you will receive guest tickets.

How many tickets do I get for my ceremony?

Due to the size of the Farquhar Auditorium each student is limited to a maximum of three guest tickets for their ceremony, subject to availability.

Can I get additional tickets for my guests?

Any remaining available tickets will be released at the UVic Ticket Centre (University Centre) one hour before each ceremony on a first come, first served basis. Maximum of two tickets per person in line.

How do I get my tickets?

You register your attendance to the ceremony and order tickets through the online process.

Once you have registered to attend your tickets will be emailed to the address that you provided with your online registration information. Tickets will be sent starting four weeks before Convocation. If you have not received your tickets before Convocation please contact the UVic Ticket Centre directly.

If one of my guests has special needs for seating, who should I contact?

Students will have an opportunity during the online registration process to indicate any special seating requirements.

Do all my guests require tickets? Do children require tickets?

All guests (including children) need a ticket to enter the auditorium.

I’m graduating; do I need a ticket to attend?

No, graduating students don’t require a ticket to attend.

If I have extra tickets, what should I do with them?

Please help other students accommodate their guests by returning any tickets you don't need to the UVic Ticket Centre on the day of your ceremony or earlier, if possible.

If I am not able to obtain seating in the auditorium, are there other options available for viewing the ceremony?

The auditorium lobby will have a large video screen set up with a live feed. This may be an option for parents with small children or guests who could not obtain Convocation tickets. The ceremonies are also webcast live.
