Guest Tickets

Allocated guest tickets - no charge

  • If you have indicated in eStudent that you will be attending, you will receive two complimentary tickets for your guests to attend the graduation ceremony. You do not need a ticket for yourself.
  • Visit eStudent to double-check that you are listed as attending.
  • Collect your tickets at the gown hire location when you collect your gown.
  • If you already have your own gown or are not going to hire a gown, you will still need to go to the gown hire location to collect your tickets.
  • The University has no objection to graduands who need more than two tickets obtaining them from those who need less than two.
  • Tickets are specific to each ceremony and cannot be transferred. The University strongly discourages 'scalpers' who offer tickets for sale.
  • If a guest needs special seating (e.g. in a particular area because of an inability to climb stairs, or there is a wheelchair) please let us know so we can reserve seating.
  • Wheelchair access is available at all venues.

Guest seating

UTAS graduation ceremonies are general admission and all guests are required to have a valid ticket for the graduation ceremony.

  • Doors open one hour before the start time of your ceremony. Guests should be seated at least 15 minutes before the advertised commencement time of the ceremony.
  • As guests do not have allocated seats, those who come earliest will obtain the best seats.
  • Your guests are not able to 'save seats', so please advise your guests to arrive together if they would like to be seated together.
  • Advise your guests to leave plenty of time to find parking, the venue, and be seated.
  • Because of the formality of the occasion, all ceremonies start exactly on time.
  • Guests will not normally be admitted once the ceremony has commenced.

Guests with Babies & Small Children

Graduation ceremonies are formal occasions with several speeches and are, therefore, not always suitable for young children.

  • If you wish to take young children, please be prepared with a snack, a drink and a quiet toy/book/activity. For ceremonies held at the Federation Concert Hall or City Recital Hall, Angel Place no food or drink is permitted in the auditorium.
  • No child-minding service is provided.
  • Parents with young children or babies are requested to sit near an exit to ensure minimum stress to all concerned.
