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 fantastic tunes, fairground rides, karaoke, street food and more! Plus, if you get our Grad Ball After Party ticket (you must have purchased a Grad Ball Standard ticket), you’ll gain access to our amazing club night at the Guild, so you can dance into the early hours with your friends.
