Security at graduation

For the safety and peace of mind of our audiences, there will be additional security measures in place at our graduation ceremonies this year.

We would recommend you travel light and avoid bringing excess baggage as we are unable to offer a cloakroom and bag storage facility at our graduation venues. Suitcases and large rucksacks will not be admitted to the Wills Memorial Building, so we would suggest these are left at your hotel, or at an alternative facility in Bristol, details of which can be found below.

Please make sure you look after your guest tickets once they have been issued, as guests will be not be permitted into a graduation ceremony unless they have a valid ticket.

You may notice increased security presence around the building and bags may be subject to searches. Please therefore allow extra time on arrival at the Wills Memorial Building for queuing.

Left Luggage facilities

Bristol Tourist Information Centre £5 per item, open 10am – 5pm (items must be collected 15 mins before closing time) Tel: 0333 3210101

Bristol Rock and Bowl Motel £3 per item, open 24 hours Tel: 0117 325 1980

Neither of these options is close to the University, so where possible we’d recommend leaving any large items at your hotel. As the amount of storage available at each may be limited, we would also recommend calling on the day to check there is space for your item(s).
