Graduation garden party

The University of St Andrews will host a graduation garden party each day from Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 June 2018.

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.

Dates and times of the June 2018 graduation garden parties are as follows:

Tuesday 26 June 2018 3.30pm to 5.00pm
Wednesday 27 June 2018 3.30pm to 5.00pm
Thursday 28 June 2018 3.30pm to 5.00pm
Friday 29 June 2018 3.30pm to 5.00pm
