New Alumni Reception
Start your convocation celebration with a visit back to campus! We invite all graduates, along with your families and friends, to join us on the main floor of Hatley Castle for a reception in your honour. Drop in to enjoy a warm welcome, information booths, opportunities to connect with other graduates and faculty, delicious treats and of course a stroll through campus to explore the breathtaking Hatley Park National Historic Site.
The New Alumni Reception features:
- A red carpet welcome
- Photo booth
- Tea, coffee and light refreshments
- An overview of RRU Connect, our online platform for alumni
- Graduation portraits by Lifetouch Canada (online reservations recommended)
- Class rings by Jostens
- Custom diploma framing by Leaderframes
- An opportunity to buy Royal Roads keepsakes
- Castle tours
We will also have a number of photographers on campus at the reception and before and after your convocation ceremonies. These images will be shared with your fellow graduates during convocation and will be made available to you as a memory of this momentous event. Should you not want to be included in these images, please introduce yourself to the photography team so we can ensure we honour your wishes.

Faculty of Social and Applied Sciences:
10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Faculty of Management & College of Interdisciplinary Studies:
