How many guests can I bring with me?

In the interests of safety, we will need to limit the number of guests who can join you in the Great Hall to two. Please note that this number includes children of any age as it relates to the capacity limit of the building and not to the availability of seats. No extra tickets will be available for the Degree Congregations (unless for a carer) but we may operate a queue outside the Great Hall prior to the ceremony, subject to capacity. Please see the FAQ 'will any extra tickets be available' for further information.

You are welcome to bring as many additional guests with you to campus as you like. Any guests that we can't accommodate in the Great Hall can watch the ceremony from our viewing room in the Lecture Theatre WG12, located in the Aston Webb Building. No tickets are needed for the viewing room, for which seats are not reserved in advance. The ceremony will also be webcast so that anyone unable to join you on campus can watch online. The recordings will then continue to be available on the University's YouTube channel, should anyone miss them live.
