Directions + Parking

Visit the Chan Centre website for information on directions and parking.


Tickets are required. Graduating students are responsible for ordering their guest tickets. Instructions will be emailed to each graduating student closer to the ceremony date. Due to the number of graduating students and limited seating, each student is allowed 2 tickets for guests.

Stand-by Line: Once all tickets have been issued, guests will be directed to this line and any returned tickets will be reallocated to them. Any guests without tickets are welcome to come early and wait in the stand-by line prior to the ceremony. It is recommended that guests arrive at least 30 minutes  before the ceremony begins. There is no guarantee that guests in the stand-by line will be able to attend the ceremony but the Chan Centre staff will do their best to accommodate everyone.


The ceremony will also be streamed via live webcast.
