Graduand and Guest Tickets

Secure guest tickets for graduation! Register via Eventbrite for The Pā, Hamilton venue. Tauranga Campus offers three complimentary guest tickets, plus live-streaming and refreshments.

As a graduand you do not require a ticket for yourself. Complimentary ticket allocation is different depending on the ceremony venue, so please read carefully:

The Pā - Hamilton 

Registrations for your guests' attendance at graduation ceremonies can be done via Eventbrite. The registration site will be open approximately three weeks before the ceremony takes place.

It is essential that you register the number of guests you are bringing so our teams can plan accordingly.  The Pā has limited seating capacity so you may not be able to secure the amount of registrations you would like. If the ticketing platform does not allow you to secure the amount your request, you can reach out to to discuss plans for your quests.

To make these registrations, simply enter your Student ID as ‘Promo Code’ to access the relevant ceremony. (Note: Graduands themselves do not require a ticket).
