AUT graduands can participate in a graduation street procession through Auckland City before the first graduation ceremony on some graduation days.
Only AUT graduands and AUT staff can take part in the procession. Your guests can watch from the pavement.
If you’re not taking part in the procession, you must be at the assembly area in the Aotea Centre (the ceremony venue) at least 30 minutes before your ceremony starts.
You should wear full academic dress for the procession.
You can also:
Be at Albert Park on Princes Street at 9.30am. The procession starts at 10am.
Graduation marshals (in blue gowns) will organise groups, as you’ll walk in the order of the ceremonies for that day.
The procession route will follow Princes Street, going left down Bowen Avenue and Victoria Street East, and then left into Queen Street up to Aotea Square.
If the weather is obviously too bad for a procession, you should go straight to the venue (Aotea Centre) 45 minutes before your ceremony starts. Ceremonies will go ahead as planned.
If you're not sure if the procession is on, call (09) 921 9999 to listen to any alternative arrangements.
