Graduation garden party

The University of St Andrews will host a graduation garden party each day from Monday 24 to Friday 28 June 2019.

This is an opportunity for the new graduates and their guests to enjoy an afternoon with their friends and fellow graduates, and to meet academic staff from your School. Held in a marquee on Lower College Hall lawn in St Salvator’s Quad, the receptions are a traditional part of the University of St Andrews graduation celebrations. Graduates and their guests are offered sparkling wine or a hot drink along with a selection of sandwiches and cakes and we hope you will join us for a memorable afternoon.

Monday 24 June 2019 3.30pm to 5.00pm
