Graduands do not need to present a ticket for admission to the ceremony, but should ensure that their guests carry tickets for presentation to stewards at the entrance to the conferring venue.  Each graduand will be allocated two tickets.  Only guests holding a ticket will be permitted entry to the conferring venue on the day.

As it is not possible, due to Health & Safety constraints and guidelines, to exceed the seating capacity of the conferring venues, we regret that requests for extra tickets cannot be accommodated.  Guests with tickets will be admitted to the conferring venue and seated first.  Additional guests may only be permitted entry to the ceremonies should seating become available. There is no guarantee that additional seating will be available at any ceremony. 

We kindly ask that the seating restrictions be observed for the safety and comfort of all graduands and their guests.

Academic robes and Ticket Collection

Graduands must wear the appropriate academic robe during the ceremony.  Graduands should pre-pay for their robes with official robe makers Phelan Conan Ltd, prior to the deadline of midnight on 19th October 2018.  The pre-payment hire price is €31.

Go to the Student Robe Hire page at for booking robes and credit/debit card payment.  If you experience any problems booking your robe, please contact 01-4295300 or email

It is a graduand’s personal responsibility to ensure that you have ordered the required robe and hood from the official supplier of academic robes so that they are available for collection for your conferring ceremony.

If you have not pre-paid for your robe online it will cost €35 to hire it at CIT on the day and you may experience delays.  Please note that no cash is accepted at CIT – only credit/debits
