Guest Seating

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

  • Doors open half an hour before the start time of your ceremony. Guests should be seated at least 10 minutes before the advertised commencement time of the ceremony.
  • Your guests will have allocated seats in the hall. Ushers will direct your guests to their allocated seats.
  • 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.
  • Children occupying a seat of their own will require a ticket. If your child can sit on an adult's lap, they will not require a ticket.

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.
  • As mentioned above, children occupying a seat of their own will require a ticket. If your child can sit on an adult's lap, they will not require a ticket.
