You can use your Priority Pass to purchase your Grad Ball ticket from 11am on Wednesday 4th May until 11am on Thursday 5th May. You only have 24 hours so use it wisely!

Right here on the Guild Tickets website. All you need to do is select your chosen tickets within the ticket windows.

You can buy up to two tickets, however this doesn’t apply to priority passes. Priority Pass holders are only eligible for priority access to one ticket. Priority Pass holders can buy an extra ticket on general sale.

Our standard Grad Ball ticket costs £45 and our Grad Ball Plus After Party ticket costs £55.

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, so 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.

None other than Sigma! Join us for a FANTASTIC live DJ set and prepare to dance the night away!

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 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.
