4. Guest tickets

Reed Graduations will email you on 4 December 2018 with instructions about how to order guest tickets.

Most graduands receive 3 to 4 tickets for their ceremony, but this depends on how many graduands are attending and the capacity of the venue. In some cases you may receive fewer tickets.

All tickets are free of charge and seating is unallocated. Once venue doors open, your guests will have to claim their seats on a first come, first served basis.

Extra tickets

If a ceremony has fewer graduands than expected, we will release additional tickets.

You will receive an email from Reed Graduations if extra tickets are available for your ceremony.

If you haven't received an email by 12 midnight on 5 December, unfortunately no extra tickets are available for your ceremony.

If no extra tickets are available, guests can still watch your ceremony via live stream.

St Lucia ceremonies are also screened in the lecture theatre in the UQ Centre. If additional seats are still available once the ceremony starts, guests will be invited to take a seat in the Exhibition Hall.

Guests without a ticket are also welcome to join you at post-ceremony celebrations, where ticket restrictions don't apply.

Tickets are not transferrable – you can't order tickets and then give them to a friend to use for their guests. Any tickets ordered by non-attending graduands will be cancelled.
