What You Need to do


In order to graduate you need to complete and submit the graduation request form (using the button below) and pay for any guests (using PayPal options on the lower part of this page). (If you need a paper form please contact the Tutorial Office.)


There is information about access to the college site for visitors with disabilities on the Access Information page. If you think you may need arrangements for access, please contact Dr Corinne Roughley, Disability Equality Officer: equality.officer@hughes.cam.ac.uk

You must submit the application at least three weeks before a Congregation Day. If your result will not be known by then, you may reserve a graduation place provisionally, as long as your result is formally confirmed at least ten days before the date (check with your supervisor if in doubt). On the form you choose:

  • When you wish to graduate, and whether in person or in absence
  • Whether you wish to attend lunch/tea, which is free to all graduands
  • Whether you wish to bring guests (maximum 3) for lunch/tea at £10 each – see booking form.
    NB. At Hughes Hall, children under 12 are not included in the guest allocation and are not charged. But at the Senate House, children of all ages need guest tickets.

Lunch Payments

While the person graduating is not charged for lunch/tea at graduation events, there is a charge of £10.00 for each guest. You can pay by PayPal, using the buttons below, or send a cheque to: Tutorial Office, Hughes Hall, Cambridge, CB1 2EW.

Whether lunch or tea is provided depends on the timing of the ceremony. Lunch/tea bookings will be confirmed when payment is received.
