Extra Tickets

If you would like to request additional tickets (beyond the 3 already provided to you), we will try our best to accommodate your requests. Ticket availability is dependent on the size of the graduating class, estimated number of guests and the capacity of the venue. 

To request additional tickets, contact - please include your full name, student number, which ceremony you will be attending and how many extra tickets you will need. 

Extra tickets will be dependent upon available seating once all students have had an opportunity to respond. Information about extra tickets will be provided one week prior to your ceremony and will be emailed to your Lakehead University account.
