When graduates book their tickets, they are asked for access information for both themselves and their guests, so we can make appropriate arrangements for seating during the ceremony. If you would like to discuss your requirements with a member of staff, please email us or give us a call.

There are several spaces for wheelchair users and some seats available for people with very limited mobility.

Assistance dogs may be taken into the hall but please tell us in advance, so we can make sure you are allocated appropriate seats. If you prefer, you may leave your dog with a member of the cloakroom staff during the performance.

There is an induction loop in the hall. You can use this by adjusting your hearing aid to the ‘T’ setting.
