Access requirements

If you or any of your guests have any health problems or disabilities that require additional support, e.g. restricted mobility, please inform the Graduation Office.  This is essential, particularly if BSL interpretation or wheelchair access is required. 

If additional support is not requested in advance the Graduation Office may not be able to guarantee arrangements. 

The Great Hall is fitted with a loop system. 

Babies and Young Children

This is a family occasion so children are welcome to attend, however they must be accompanied by an adult and any child aged 2 or over must be allocated a guest ticket.  Ceremonies last for around 90 minutes so they may not be suitable for very young children.  Out of respect for other guests we request that small children should be taken outside if they become unsettled during the ceremony so as not to disturb proceedings. 

Please note that prams and pushchairs may not be brought into the Hall but can be left in the side corridors by prior arrangement.
