Guest Tickets & Campus Access

e-Tickets (QR codes) with the ceremony information will be sent to the registered guest(s) by SMS at least two working days prior to the respective Commencement Day. Please ensure you have the e-Ticket for entering the campus/hall. Graduates may also retrieve the e-Tickets for their registered guests via AIMS (Student Services/Alumni Services >> Confirmation of Commencement Attendance) when necessary.

Both graduates and guests are required to show the e-Ticket (in electronic or printed form) for scanning at the entrances of the CityU campus and all ceremonial and live broadcast halls.

Graduates will be assigned a seat. Free seating for guests.

The e-Tickets (QR codes) for graduates and guests are differentiated by colours. Blue is for graduates and red is for guests. Please refer to the samples below for reference.
