FAQs about Graduation


Free shuttle to campus.

Getting to campus, finding a park, it’s not always easy. UNE will have shuttle services running from on-campus car parks regularly picking up and dropping off, however you can also get a free shuttle from town. This service departs from most motels in town, as well as the Visitor Information Centre, every 20 mins prior to graduation. Download the timetable here, or see below.

You can also visit the online interactive map to check the route.


Gown up.

UNE Life’s Graduation Services has a wide range of gowns, bonnets, trenchers, hoods, and stoles for sale and hire, that meet the needs of graduands. You’ll find all of these items and more at The Shop.
