Information you'll need to book your tickets

The information below relates to our Derby Award Ceremonies to be held at the Derby Arena on Thursday 23rd November and Friday 24th November 2017.

You can order tickets for guests and the Graduation Comedy Night by logging into UDo.  Please ensure you read the information below, the Ceremony Eligibility and Attendance page and our Derby Terms and Conditions prior to placing an order.  When you make a payment for tickets you’ll receive an automated confirmation email to confirm your payment has been successful.

The deadline for ordering tickets is Sunday 15th October 2017.

Ordering your tickets

Ticket prices are as follows:

  • Graduand tickets are free of charge
  • Guest tickets are £13 each.  You may order up to 5 guest tickets.
  • Graduation Comedy Night tickets are £5 each.  You may order up to 6 tickets.  The Graduation Comedy Night is being held on the evening of Thursday 23 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 5 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 19th 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 have an overseas address as your mailing/home address your tickets will be available for collection between the dates 13th November to 17th November 2017 from the International Student Centre at Kedleston Road.  From 20th November 2017 onwards tickets will only be available for collection on the day of your award ceremony at Derby Arena.
