AUT graduands can choose to participate in a graduation street procession through Auckland City before the first ceremony on your graduation day.
Only AUT graduands and AUT staff can take part in the procession. If you choose to participate, 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 ceremony venue at least 45 minutes before your ceremony starts.
You should wear full academic dress for the procession.
You can also:
You'll be walking on public roads, so be mindful of your surroundings and weather conditions on the day to avoid slips, trips, falls or other mishaps. In the event of an emergency, don't panic and follow the instructions of the parade marshals and security guards around you.
If the weather is obviously too bad for a procession, you should go straight to the venue 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.
