Use the Graduation Checklist to help you complete the journey and enjoy the ceremony and your day to the fullest.
The graduation regalia rental portal will open on April 1.
If you haven’t rented your gown in advance, you can rent your regalia on-site:
- Please arrive at the Student Marshaling Tent in the Buchanan courtyard 1.5 hours before your ceremony to rent a gown.
- The cost to rent your regalia is $70 (cash, debit or credit)
Share the day with your family and guests
Share this day with the loved ones who helped get you here. You can request up to two (2) guest tickets online starting approximately 2 months prior to the graduation ceremonies.
Family and friends who cannot join you at your graduation ceremonies may watch the live webcast to virtually cheer you on.
UBC hosts nearly 32,000 graduates and their guests each year for the spring and fall graduation ceremonies. These resources will help your guests easily find their way to ceremonies, receptions and more.
