Graduation - Booking additional tickets

Students celebrating their graduation - University of Salford, summer 2018

Booking additional tickets

All graduates that register to attend a ceremony may request up to 2 guest tickets free of charge. The University cannot guarantee the release of additional guest tickets and will update registered graduates if we are able to do so.

Guest tickets will not be posted in advance, you will be able to collect tickets on the day from the Ticket Desk once you have completed registration.


Live Stream

A live stream of all ceremonies will be shown on campus at Peel Hall in the Peel Building. This is free of charge; no booking is required.


Children are welcome at the ceremonies, however sometimes they can prove to be too long for younger children who may become restless. For the comfort of other guests, guardians may be asked to take any child that becomes agitated or distressed out of the Theatre to the foyer area.

Children over 2 years of age must have their own seat in the Theatre and therefore must be included in your guest numbers for full priced tickets. Children up to the age of 2 may sit on an adult’s lap and will require a free ‘Child Under 2’ ticket which can be booked once you have purchased any additional guest tickets by calling the Graduation Office on 0161 295 5241/5275/2003. This is due to Health and Safety regulations that require all participants and guests at the ceremonies to be seated.

Children under the age of 16 are not allowed into the Theatre without being accompanied by an adult in the seating area. Alternatively, there will be a nursery available supervised by fully trained staff. Please note that the nursery is at Jack Goldberg Building on the Frederick Road Campus at the University of Salford and you will need to make arrangements with the Nursery Manager regarding sessions and availability of places. There will be a charge for this service and places are limited. Please allow enough time to drop your child off prior to the ceremony.

Contact details for the nursery are: Busy Bees at the University of Salford Statham Street Salford, M6 6PU
