Ordering your tickets

Ticket prices are as follows:

  • Graduand tickets are free of charge
  • Guest tickets are £13 each.  You may order up to 6 guest tickets.
  • Graduation Party tickets are £5 each.  You may order up to 4 Graduation Party tickets.  The Graduation Party is being held on the evening of Friday 25 November in the Student Union quarter at the University.  There is limited availability for these tickets.
  • Disabled parking spaces are available for students or guests who hold blue badge parking permits.  These are without charge but MUST be ordered when ordering your tickets.  You’ll be required to display on your vehicle a blue badge parking permit AND the disabled parking permit we’ll supply, on the day of the ceremony.  Please note that, due to the nature of the event, we receive a great deal of these requests.  While we are able to offer a reserved parking space close to the venue we are unable to offer wide berth parking spaces for every blue badge holder.

You can purchase up to to 6 guest tickets.

There will be a service at the Cathedral that all graduands and guests are invited to.  The service will be held on Sunday 20 November at 6pm.  There is no ticket requirement for this thanksgiving service.

If you have any special requirements for the award ceremonies you can tell us online when you order.

Ticket orders will be posted to UK addresses in early November.  If you’ve an overseas address as your mailing/home address your tickets will be available for collection from 7 November 2016 from main reception at Kedleston Road up until 18 November 2016.  From 21 November 2016 onwards tickets will only be available for collection on the day of your award ceremony at Derby Arena.
