After six decades, Western looks for convocation alternatives to Alumni Hall

Western University is reportedly looking for alternative graduation ceremony locations in the future, as its 60-year-old venue, Alumni Hall, is struggling to meet the university’s current and future needs. “We have identified some challenges that will impact the continued use of Alumni Hall as the venue for convocation ceremonies,” said Western University Secretary Amy Bryson. “These include accessibility for our graduates and guests, parking resources, and space constraints as Western plans for enrolment growth.” The London Free Press reports that the university already holds 27 convocation ceremonies in the hall each year and that future enrolment growth would require the university to increase the number of ceremonies it holds.
