If you are in London next week, there will be an in-person photobooth at The Crossing at Central Saint Martins as part of this year’s virtual graduation.

From Monday 12 to Friday 16 July, we’ll be photographing graduating students, one at a time, on a first-come, first-served basis. We will have caps and gowns available for BA and MA courses.

Your photo will be emailed to you so you can use it in the virtual photobooth during your Virtual graduation ceremony. In the virtual photobooth you will be able to add stickers, backgrounds and frames to your photos! Please allow a couple of days to receive your photos.

Information for Friday 16 July

The demand for the graduation photo booth is huge, as you can imagine. If you are planning on coming down tomorrow, here are a few things you should be aware of:

  • There is likely to be a long queue, so please be prepared to wait for your turn
  • The queue will be open in the morning between 9.30 - 11.30am. If you are not in the queue by 1130am, you will be asked to return in the afternoon.
  • The queue in the afternoon will be open 1 - 2pm. If you are not in the queue by 2pm, we will be unable to take your photograph.
  • You will only be able to wear a graduation gown for your official photograph and you will be unable to take any personal photographs away from the photo booth.
  • You will need to return the graduation gown as soon as your official photograph has been taken. This is so we can offer this service to as many of our graduates as possible, so please be considerate to other students.
