About the ceremonies
The University of Waterloo community gathers in June and October each year to celebrate the awarding of degrees at convocation. Faculty, staff, students and their families/guests get together for this very special event. Honorary degrees are also presented at these ceremonies.
Each convocation ceremony usually lasts approximately two hours. Please note that small children may find it difficult to sit through the whole ceremony.
Complimentary souvenir programs will be distributed to graduates and their guests.
