Convocation ceremonies

Convocation is a unique event, a time to celebrate with those who have helped you reach your goals — family, friends and members of the uOttawa community.

There are two main sets of Convocation ceremonies each year: one in June and one in the Fall.

The next convocation ceremonies will take place from Saturday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at the Shaw Centre and will last approximately two and a half hours.
