We can arrange for:

- wheelchair access.
For guests, we can arrange a wheelchair bay or aisle seat if required.
Let us know by adding this information in the special requirements field of your graduation application, or by lodging an enquiry online.
Children at graduations
If bringing children to your graduation, one of your guests will need to supervise them during the ceremony, which runs for about 90 minutes.
During the ceremony, children cannot:
- sit with you while you’re waiting to receive your award
- go on stage with you.
Infants and small children can get restless, so please arrive early to secure guest seats near the aisle, just in case they need to make an early exit.
You can't take your pram into the Robert Blackwood Hall. Please leave it in the space set aside in the foyer.
Do children need tickets?
Children four years and under
Children four years and under have the option of:
- sitting on their parent or guardian’s lap without a ticket, or
- sitting in their own seat – but to do this, they'll need a ticket.
Children over four years old
Children older than four will need their own ticket for a seat.
