Halifax Ceremonies

If you are a student who is graduating from a faculty that is located in Halifax, then you will attend your Convocation ceremony in Halifax for both the spring and fall ceremonies. Graduates from the Faculty of Agriculture attend a Convocation ceremony in Truro if they are graduating in the Spring and in Halifax if they are graduating in the fall.

Convocation ceremonies on our Halifax Campus are held at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in the Dalhousie Arts Centre (6101 University Ave, Halifax). Graduates are seated on the main floor of the auditorium.  Following Convocation a reception is held in the Arts Centre lobby and Sculpture Court; all are invited to attend.

Please contact convocation@dal.ca if you or your guests require special seating arrangements or other accommodations. We will be happy to work with you to explore your options.

If you are a visitor to Halifax and are looking for a place of worship, information is available through Dalhousie Multifaith Services.

Please explore the menu options on the right to learn more about the ceremony and services provided.
