Frames, Rings, and Photography

Parchment framing  

Dalhousie's Bookstore is pleased to provide a parchment framing service at Jenkins Hall on the Agriculture Campus and in the Dalhousie Arts Centre on the Halifax Campus during and after each Convocation ceremony. There is a variety of frame styles to choose from to have staff frame your parchment and to purchase.

Graduate rings  

On behalf of Dalhousie's Bookstore, Josten's Inc will host a graduation ring table at Jenkins Hall on the Agriculture Campus and the Dalhousie Arts Centre on the Halifax campus during and after all Convocation ceremonies.


Dalhousie offers graduates the opportunity to have professional photographs taken during Convocation.  A professional photographer will take candid capping photographs from a position onstage as each graduate greets the Chancellor.  

A link to the digital proof and photography package information will be available from LifeTouch shortly after Convocation.  Please touch base with LifeTouch to gain access to your proof. There is no obligation to make a purchase.

If you wish to NOT have your photograph taken while greeting the Chancellor, you must contact convocation@dal.ca at least one week prior to the ceremonies.

In addition, LifeTouch staff will set up a portrait studio for family or individual portraits during and following the ceremonies. You can book your session now through the Lifetouch website or by speaking with a LifeTouch staff member during graduate line-up.

Portrait session location:
Foyer next to Gowns Room (Classroom), Langille Athletic Centre
