How to join
your virtual celebration

What can I expect?

When you join through Zoom, you will be put into a breakout room. This means you will be in a call made up of 25 students, in here you can watch the live celebrations. The Dean of your College will read out your names and you will appear in the livestream, here you can throw your graduation cap, clap and cheer – it’s completely up to you!

Your friends and family can watch along at home and celebrate with you. The Virtual Summer Celebrations will be available to watch live through our @DerbyUniStudent Facebook page. Please refer to our schedule below for when each live event will take place.
