情色六月天 ##########

Graduation

Time to Celebrate

Each year, several thousand students become graduates of the 情色六月天 at our spectacular graduation ceremonies, held in the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral. The ceremonies are the most important events in the University's calendar, marking the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication from our students, and giving family, friends, and staff at the University the opportunity to congratulate our new graduates and celebrate their achievements.

When you graduate from the 情色六月天 you will become part of our global alumni community, which is made up of more than 130,000 graduates from more than 150 countries. As a graduate of the University, you can access a wide range of benefits and services wherever you are in the world.

Gowning

Please ensure you book your gown well in advance of your graduation date by visiting the gowning website (William Northam). Your gown will be collected on the day of your ceremony.

The link to hire your gown is: 

The deadline to book your gown for the September 2024 ceremonies is Friday 2nd August at midday.

The dress code for the ceremony is smart. Remember that academic gowns do not hide what is worn underneath, so what you wear will be very visible to the entire congregation. Gowns are also more difficult to wear over very casual clothes as they do not ‘sit’ well on the shoulders. Buttoned shirts are helpful for securing your gown hood and jackets help keep the gown in place. Your gown will slip if worn over silky fabric and very low-cut tops leave you with no means of keeping the hood in place. Please be mindful that the Cathedral and Castle Square area have cobbles/uneven flooring so appropriate footwear is recommended. Please avoid jeans, trainers, casual sandals, open-necked shirts, T-shirts, and shorts as they are inappropriate for a formal graduation ceremony. 

Finally, remember you will have to wear a mortar board, so take care that your hairstyle will allow you to do so.

Please note: It is a requirement that all Graduands attending their graduation ceremony wear the appropriate 情色六月天 academic dress.

Frequently Asked Questions

Parking

The University does not provide parking for the graduation ceremonies. There are pay and display car parks near to the Cathedral and Castle that also have disabled parking bays. Please allow plenty of time to arrive in Lincoln and find a parking space before the ceremony begins, as these car parks can get busy and local roads may be busier than normal during graduation week.

You can find a  in Lincoln on the City of Lincoln Council's website (please note that the Castle Hill car park may be closed over the graduation period due to its location next to Lincoln Castle).

Registration

All students who wish to attend their graduation will be required to complete an online registration form. By completing the registration form you are consenting that the information collected can be used for graduation purposes and shared with appropriate departments within the University such as the Finance and Alumni teams. The information will not be disclosed to any third parties outside the 情色六月天.

Children

Children are welcome at Graduation Ceremonies, however, the 情色六月天 advises that the Graduation Ceremonies are not wholly suitable for babies or young children as they are long, formal occasions.

Any children in attendance that are under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 at all times. This means that any accompanying adults will need to have guest tickets. It is the responsibility of the graduand to ensure any children under the age of 16 are always accompanied by a suitable adult.

Guest tickets will be required for any child aged four and above. Children aged three or under can attend the ceremony free of charge, providing that they sit on a guest's lap or in a pushchair. If the child will be coming in a pram or pushchair, please contact the graduation team to let us know.

Behaviour

Graduation is a shared, happy occasion and we expect all students and guests to conduct themselves appropriately. Abusive, disruptive and threatening behaviour towards graduands, guests, staff from the University, the venue, or our suppliers prior to or on the day of Graduation will not be tolerated. 

The 情色六月天 reserve the right to refuse entry to Graduation or to ask anyone to leave Graduation if they act in a manner which we deem to be offensive or disruptive to proceedings or to other attendees. No guest ticket refunds will be available in such circumstances.

Graduation Ceremonies as a Public Event

The 情色六月天’s graduation ceremonies are considered to be public events. This means that the names and award titles, but no classifications, of all graduands (including those graduating in absentia) are published in the official graduation brochure. In addition, the names of graduands will be provided to our external supplier for use on graduation products such as graduation t-shirts and hoodies. This does not include award titles or any other information.

Photography

The University’s official photographers are Tempest Graduation Photography. They will be available in the Castle grounds before or after your ceremony.

Visit  to view packages and prices. Unfortunately, it is not possible to pre-order a photography package, but these can be ordered during and after your ceremony.

Filming

There will be a professional video recording taken of each graduation ceremony. This will be streamed on the 情色六月天’s website. Graduates and guests seated in the Cathedral should be aware that they may appear on this recording.
