Questions and answers, FAQ
What is the dresscode?
Female graduands wear a dress, trouser suit or the like. Alternatively national dress/traditional costume can also be worn. Male graduands wear suits. The Chalmers cap (white for ceremonial occasions) is not compulsory but adds to the festive impression.
Does the dress code apply to my guests as well?
Your guests should wear a suit and suitable dress for the ladies if they are attending the dinner. If your guests are only attending the ceremony, then the dress code is not compulsory, but we regard formal dress as a sign of respect for you and the other graduands as a matter of course.
May I invite guests?
You may invite a maximum of three guests to both the graduation ceremony and the dinner. If you wish to invite more guests, please note this on your registration. We will contact you after registration deadline in case we have spare seats.
Why is the number of guests limited?
We think that it is important to arrange the graduation dinner at a venue linked to Chalmers. At present there is no restaurant either on Johanneberg Campus or Lindholmen Campus for more than about 500 people.
Must I attend the dinner after the graduation ceremony?
No, the graduation ceremony and the graduation dinner are two separate events. In order to register for the dinner, you must, however, have taken part in the graduation ceremony the same day.
May children attend the ceremony?
Children can come to the ceremony, but your guests should be prepared to take them outside if they disturb other guests.
May children attend the dinner?
The dinner is an occasion for adults and we therefore do not recommend participation of children.
If you decide to bring hildren who requires a seat of their own ithey are included in the amount of guests and will be charged the same price as adults.
