Availability of extra guest tickets for April 2019 Callaghan ceremonies

Remember, your Graduation Package already includes tickets for you and up to three guests to attend the ceremony and Graduation reception.

What can I do if I miss out on purchasing extra guest tickets?

We understand that graduation is an important celebration for you to share with your family and friends. If you are unable to purchase extra guest tickets you can still include your supporters in the celebrations via the livestream of your graduation ceremony.

The livestream can be viewed from the McMullin Theatre, adjacent to the Great Hall, or online through the UON Graduation website.

Occasionally, there may be a very limited number of extra guest tickets for sale on a first in, first served basis, at the Registration Desk prior to the graduation ceremony.

How do I collect my guest tickets?

Guest tickets are given to you at the Registration Desk on the day of your ceremony.
