If you're looking for the perfect way to remember your graduation celebrations, take a look at the merchandise options available.


Students graduating in November can have studio photographs taken by Tempest in Parliament Hall, South Street. No prior booking required.

The studio opening hours are as follows:

Day Time
Tuesday 29 November 8.30am to 5.30pm
Wednesday 30 November 8.30am to 5.30pm

An official Tempest photographer will also be in the Quad taking roaming shots of graduates and their guests throughout the graduation day. These photographs are for University use. You can have individual, family and group photographs taken throughout the day but please remember to pick up your gown first.

Presentation photographs are taken as you cross the stage during your graduation ceremony and will be available to view at Salvator's Lawn immediately after your ceremony.

The presentation photographs and candid shots will be publicly available to view online on the Tempest Events website. It is recommended that you purchase your photographs as soon as possible after graduation.

Free photo printing

Every time someone posts a picture to Instagram and Twitter using the unique hashtag #SaintsGraduation it will get printed live - just 30 seconds from upload to print. Prints are unlimited and will be free for all guests at graduation to take away as a unique souvenir. Collect your free prints from Development at the receptions.
