University Events & Ceremonies

The University Events Office is the central hub for orchestrating grand, pan-University gatherings hosted by the President and Chancellor.

Major campus events include Convocation ceremonies and gatherings to honour our employees, celebrate our donors and unveil new buildings.

Our events department promotes an inclusive sense of community at CapU. The team works hard to organize and manage various events that enrich the community.

From the CapU Street Party (CUSP) to the annual gatherings of our alumni, recruitment open houses and the awarding of honorary degrees, this office connects CapU.

Our team also shares its expertise with people and groups seeking to create program-specific or student-run events, providing needed guidance and resources.
