Useful Information

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.

Car parks in Lincoln (please note that the Castle Hill car park may be closed over the graduation period).

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 Finance and Alumni. The information will not be disclosed to any third parties outside the University of Lincoln.

Graduation Ceremonies as a Public Event

The University of Lincoln’s bi-annual graduation ceremonies held in January and September 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 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 photography studio in the Castle Grounds, before or after your ceremony.

Visit Tempest Graduation Photography 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 University of Lincoln’s website and will be available for purchase on DVD after the ceremony. Graduates and guests seated in the Cathedral should be aware that they may appear on this recording.

The Press

The local press may be in attendance at the ceremonies and may take photographs and video footage. They will not use individual or small group shots of you without asking for your consent first.

Communication

We are usually only able to discuss student-related matters directly with the student concerned and are not at liberty to divulge information or take instruction from a third party, even if that person is a family member.

Additional Information

We need to know if graduands or their guests require any additional requirements (e.g. for health or mobility reasons), so that appropriate support and adjustments can be made on the day. This information is held securely and only shared with those involved in the running of the ceremony, such as the graduation ushers. Any information regarding a student or their guests’ additional requirements will be deleted immediately after the ceremonies have taken place.
