Graduation

COVID-19 information

Last updated: March 2022

Working closely with De Montfort Hall, we are following the latest Government guidance for our graduation ceremonies.

If you test positive for COVID-19, or have COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend your graduation ceremony. You can let us know you’re unable to attend by emailing graduation@leicester.ac.uk

Please take a test

Whilst it is no longer mandatory, guests aged 12 and above are strongly encouraged by De Montfort Hall to either be fully vaccinated or to have had a negative test (rapid lateral flow or PCR) result within 48 hours of visiting the venue. Even if you are vaccinated, it is highly recommended to take a test before your visit.

Guests, please have your ticket ready

Only ticket holders will be allowed into the venue for our graduation ceremonies. If you have guests who would like to share your special day with you but who do not have tickets for the ceremony at De Montfort Hall, they are very welcome to visit campus on the day and celebrate your graduation with you before and after the ceremony. They can also watch the livestream of our ceremonies at a location on campus.

Please check-in and use hand sanitiser

The NHS Test and Trace QR code will be available at the front doors and around the venue, please check-in as you arrive. There will be hand sanitiser available at the entrance and throughout the venue. Please use it before you enter and during your visit.

Social distance as much as you can

Wherever possible, please try to social distance from other people when moving around inside the venue and remain responsible during your visit.

Only bring essential items with you

The cloakroom will not be open during the ceremony, so please only bring essential items with you. If you have large bags, there will be limited space to store them in the luggage storage at the front of De Montfort Hall.

Please stay seated after the ceremony

To avoid congestion, please stay seated until you are advised to leave the hall.
