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 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 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.
