Construction is on schedule for Convocation Mall and the Convocation ceremonies will proceed as planned from June 11 – 14, 2019.

Road construction notice

  • Please allow for extra time to get to SFU’s Burnaby campus during Convocation week. FortisBC is upgrading gas lines around Gaglardi Way and Broadway. Roads will be open, but only a single lane in either direction. Visit www.talkingenergy.ca for more information.
  • In addition, there may be delays on University Drive East and we expect a higher than normal number of vehicles coming up the mountain for Convocation.
  • If you’re travelling by bus, please check with TransLink (www.translink.ca) for the most up-to-date information.

Procession options

SFU is committed to providing an accessible environment for all who work, study, or visit on campus. The university continues to explore new procession options in order to provide all graduands and ceremony participants with a fully accessible experience.
