Helpful Timings for the Day

Please read this page carefully so that you can make the most of your day on the College Lane Campus and at St Albans Cathedral.

Your graduation day will be taking place on the College Lane Campus and St Albans Cathedral.

You will arrive to College Lane first to collect your tickets and robes, have professional photos taken and enjoy pre-ceremony refreshments. You must collect your tickets from College Lane before travelling to the Cathedral as entrance to the ceremony is strictly by ticket only.

You will then travel to St Albans Cathedral for your ceremony. We will be running free shuttles to and from College Lane and St Albans. You can find more information about this below.

It is vital you arrive to St Albans Cathedral with your tickets on time so that you and your guests can take part in your ceremony. If you arrive to the Cathedral more than 15 minutes after your ceremony start time, we may not be able to get you and your guests in to the ceremony.
