This page has information for guests who are attending a graduation day street procession or graduation ceremony. Current students and graduands can find more details on SDW.
AUT graduands can take part in a city street procession on some graduation days. Guests are welcome to watch from the pavement along the route.
The graduands begin their procession at 10am from Albert Park.
The route follows 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 and you are attending a graduation ceremony, you should go to the venue (Aotea Centre) 30 minutes before the ceremony starts.
Graduation ceremonies are held at the Aotea Centre. If you are unable to get a ticket, you can also watch the ceremony on a screen in the atrium of the Aotea Centre.
Your tickets are not for allocated seats and you will sit separately from graduands. You should arrive at the Aotea Centre 30 minutes before the ceremony. The ceremony takes about two hours.
Car parking can be difficult on graduation days, so allow extra time to find a park before your ceremony.
Some parking places near the venue include:
A range of memorabilia is available at the venue on the day:
