How do I take my degree?
Degree days for members of the College are held on six days during each year, usually on one occasion in Michaelmas Term, and five across Trinity Term and the Long Vacation. Degrees to be taken ‘in absentia’ can be arranged at any University ceremony.
Please contact the College Office for a list of dates and to request a booking form. Dates, ceremony information, and booking forms can also be found on the College website.
First time or replacement degree certificates must be ordered from the University; please visit the University website for details of how to go about this and for a comprehensive guide to Matriculation and Graduation.
The College can provide proof that you attended Queen’s and an official document confirming the degree you read and the class in which you were placed. Please email us.
Can I stay overnight in College?
The guest rooms are popular and often therefore fully booked. During the vacations the College offers a variety of other rooms on a bed-and-breakfast basis and, subject to availability, they can be booked via the Conference Office – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Old Members are entitled to a substantial discount on these rates, using a specific promotional code when booking (Conference Office staff will let you know what this is when you contact them).
Alternatively, universityrooms may have accommodation available at other colleges that offer a discount to Queen’s alumni.
