Guests don’t need tickets to attend the graduation ceremony.

Due to the capacity of the Town Hall we ask graduates the total number of guest seats they require when they register. If you want to increase your guest seats you can update your registration via the Student Hub or let us know by email at

Please let us know if any of your guests need assistance on graduation day. e.g. an elderly guest with limited mobility or anyone specifically requiring ground floor seating.

Professional ceremony photography

McRobie Studios take a photograph of everyone who crosses the stage at the Graduation Ceremony. Photographs will be taken as degrees are conferred and awards are presented.

These photographs, along with frames and mattes with the Otago Polytechnic logo*, are available to view and order online at McRobies. There are alternate ways to order, please enquire about this directly with McRobie Studios (details on their website).
