Ryerson University has made the difficult decision to postpone all fall 2020 convocation ceremonies until 2021 or until it is permitted to safely hold large public gatherings again. Please refer to the Graduation and Convocation section of Ryerson’s central COVID-19 website as this situation continues to evolve.

About the Ceremonials Office
The Ceremonials Office is at the helm of organizing convocation for all students, faculty and staff at Ryerson University. Ceremonies are held each spring and fall at the Mattamy Athletic Centre.
Convocation is one of the most important celebrations in a student’s life. It is a time to recognize successful years of study and dedication, and an opportunity to celebrate this achievement with family and friends. It is a formal acknowledgement of each student’s development and a time to reflect on accomplishments. Ryerson University has always taken great pride in its convocation ceremonies. Filled with symbolism and tradition, convocation is the capstone of a student’s academic experience.
