Celebration Information


We are excited to share details about how Dalhousie University will be celebrating you and your acheivement! Even though we are sadly unable to do so together in person, we’ve been working hard to ensure you have an opportunity to mark this important milestone and take pride in all you’ve achieved.

We know many of our graduates will still want their chance to walk across the Convocation stage. We will be in touch at a later date with details of future ceremonies that you can choose to take part in.

Spring Convocation week is June 7-11, 2021, with the university-wide Virtual Convocation Celebration on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at 2:00pm (AST). Your faculties may be planning additional events and will be in touch with you directly in the coming weeks as their plans develop. Please mark your calendars and share this date with your family and friends.

Faculty celebration details, once available, will be posted here. We ask that graduates continue to check their dal.ca email for the latest updates.
