Graduation Information for Faculty

RSVP Online

All faculty are invited to walk in the Faculty Procession. You will receive an invitation via email and you must RSVP online with your correct code. This is important as the Ceremonies and Events Office needs to know how many faculty to expect in the procession and to seat on stage.

If you are a UBC Faculty member and have not received an email invitation with a specific RSVP code by the end of October 2021, please contact ceremonies.graduation@ubc.ca.

Please note: Associate Deans and Members of the Vancouver Senate have a different RSVP code – please check your invitation.

On the day: You must check in to the assigned Robing Room 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. If you are renting regalia, please ensure you leave adequate time to pick up your regalia from the Bookstore staff in the Telus Studio Theatre inside the The Chan Centre.

Regalia Rentals

Appropriate academic attire is required of all participants. Faculty regalia (i.e. Black gown and UBC Faculty hood) may be ordered online through the UBC Bookstore’s faculty website.

The deadline to rent regalia online is November 19th.

After the deadline you can rent regalia on-site:

  • Please arrive 45 minutes before the ceremony at the Telus Studio Theatre in the Chan Centre.
  • You can pay cash, credit, debit or Work tag account.
