Grad Ball is open to everyone. We know from previous years that the majority of tickets are purchased by graduating students, however as students are able to bring a non-UoB guest or a friend from another year, we’re unable to restrict tickets to only the graduating class.

In a word: FANCY. Get your black ties and glam dresses at the ready, and prepare for the red-carpet treatment!

You can bring a guest, you’ll just need to purchase an additional ticket once they go on general sale. Guests must attend with the ticketholder / UoB student as tickets are purchased with your Student ID.

We will be taking over campus to bring you a fantastic party – the only way to celebrate the end of the year!

There will be awesome tunes, fairground rides, karaoke, street food and more! Plus, if you get our Grad Ball After Party ticket, you’ll gain access to our amazing club night at the Guild, so you can dance into the early hours with your friends.

First, make sure you're typing in your correct billing information and card details - it's easy to forget whether the bank has your home or term-time address. Make sure you enter the address you registered your card to, and not just where you happen to be living now!

If that doesn't solve the problem, send us an email at website@guild.bham.ac.uk and we'll do our best to help you out. You'll make it easy for us to help you if you include your full name, student number AND a screenshot of your problem.
