Guest Limit & Inclement Weather
Guests do not need tickets to attend Convocation ceremonies. Limits are in place to allow for space, recognizing that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some people may prefer to spread out in what could be a crowded situation. We are cautiously increasing the guest limits to 6 guests/graduate outside, and 3 guests/graduate if the ceremonies are moved to the gym for inclement weather. If circumstances require it, we will not hesitate to adapt our plans accordingly.
Please note that guests will be required to follow all current COVID-19 health and safety protocols that may be in effect on campus at the time of the ceremonies.
In the case of inclement weather, the call to move ceremonies indoors will be made 1 hour prior to the ceremony's start. Ceremonies will move indoors to the Athletics Centre gymnasium, and there is a limit of two (3) guests to watch the graduate. Additional guests may watch the ceremonies live streamed in a number of locations around campus: Stohn Hall in the Student Centre, Wenjack Theatre in Otonabee College, Champlain College Lecture Hall Room 307, and the Bata Library Theater Room. All seats are on a first-come, first-served basis, they are not assigned. Please determine which guests will go to the gym prior to the ceremony.
