Guest and Ticket Information Guest and Ticket Information

How do I secure guest tickets for my Graduation?

During the Graduation registration you will be prompted to complete a section relating to guest tickets.

How many guest tickets can I request?

We welcome you to celebrate your day with family and friends. Seating at Carrow Road stadium (where the ceremony takes place) is limited and we can only guarantee a maximum of three guest tickets to each student graduating in person.

Are children allowed to attend Graduation?

Children aged under two are not usually permitted to attend Graduation at Carrow Road stadium. Children aged two and over will require a ticket to enter the stadium, which will need to be taken from your allocation.

What is the difference between a Standard and a Package Guest Ticket?

There are two types of guest ticket available, Standard and Package.

Standard Guest Tickets are free of charge and guarantee each guest a seat in your ceremony.

Package Guest Tickets cost £15.00 per guest and include:

  • A seat in the ceremony for your guest
  • A Graduation Brochure
  • Admission to the post-ceremony reception in the Top of the Terrace including a glass of Prosecco on arrival (A soft drink alternative is available)

If you purchase package tickets for your guest/s, you will automatically gain entry into the post-ceremony reception including a glass of Prosecco (A soft drink alternative is available) at no additional cost.

How do I upgrade my standard guest tickets to package guest tickets?

Please email Graduation@uea.ac.uk no later than 15 June 2018 to arrange your upgrade (payment will be required).

Will I be able to upgrade my tickets on the day of the ceremony?

No, upgrades must be completed no later than 15 June 2018 and will not be available on the day of your ceremony.

Can I get a refund for package guest tickets that are no longer required?

If you have already purchased Package Tickets that are no longer required, you can request a refund up until 13 July 2018 by emailing Graduation@uea.ac.uk. After this date we will be unable to offer a refund. 

Is there a possibility of receiving more than three guest tickets?

If we have any extra guest tickets available once Graduation registration has closed, we will allocate these via a ballot system during June. If you would like to enter the ballot, please indicate this during the Graduation registration task when prompted. We will let you know if your entry has been successful via email by the end of June.

Extra ceremony tickets are not guaranteed and any advance arrangements regarding your party's travel or accommodation are made at your own risk.

When will I receive my tickets?

Your tickets will be available at the South Stand Ticket Collection point from two hours prior to your ceremony and will NOT be sent to you in advance.

Stadium Map

Will my guests with a ticket be able to sit anywhere in the stadium?

All of your guests with a ticket will be allocated a specific seat within the stadium. The seat number will be printed on the ticket and where possible all of your party will be seated together.

Will guests without a ticket be able to enter the stadium?

Entrance to the stadium is by ticket only. Any guest without a ticket will be refused entry.

How will family/friends without a ticket watch my ceremony?

A live webcast service will be provided by Visions Unlimited and all ceremonies will be available to view here 10 minutes before the event is due to start.
