Convocation is a very special event that brings together graduates and members of the University of Ottawa community.

For graduating students, it is a time to celebrate their accomplishments in front of family and friends. And for members of the University community, it is a time to celebrate the efforts of students they have supported during their studies at the University of Ottawa.

There are two convocations each academic year: one in June and one in October. The next convocation ceremonies will take place on Sunday, October 23, 2016 in the beautiful setting of Southam Hall at the National Arts Centre.

  • If you are a graduating student, you must register in order to receive your degree. You must also indicate whether you wish to participate in the upcoming convocation ceremony.
