On-site photographers
You are cautioned against self-appointed photographers who wander near or onto the premises (outside the hall) and create the impression that they have been authorised by the university to render their services. Please note that this is not the case.

Approved photographer
The approved photographer is:

Gordon Harris Photographic cc
1337 Stanza Bopape (Church) Street

E-mail :
Tel : 0861 467 366; (International: +27 124303725)
Fax : 0861 477 329

The approved photographer will be inside the hall and or foyer only, and will be available two hours before the ceremony – as well as after the ceremony – to take studio photos of you and your guests. Order forms can be obtained at their stalls inside the hall.

You will be able to identify Gordon Harris staff by their corporate attire. 

Should you utilise the services of the approved photographer, you do so at your own risk. Unisa will not accept responsibility for any service related issues.

Photographic services during the ceremony
The approved photographer will take a photo of you on stage:

  • If you are a graduand, a photo will be taken when the Registrar drapes the hood over your shoulders.  Please maintain an erect posture and face the camera.  The Registrar will stand on a podium behind you to ensure that your hood is neatly draped to allow for a good photo to be taken.
  • If you are a diploma candidate, a photo will be taken when the Registrar congratulates you with a handshake.

After you have descended the stage, a head-and-shoulders photograph will be taken of you.
Please note that you are not obligated to order any photos taken during the ceremony.

Graduation DVD (Pretoria only)
A DVD of the graduation ceremony (Pretoria venue only) will be made available at a cost of R150 (current price) per copy. Please place your order at the relevant counter on the day of your graduation ceremony.

Alumni shop and memorabilia
On the day of your graduation ceremony, Unisa-branded clothing, headwear, writing instruments, stationery, gifts, outdoor items and other branded articles will be on sale at the Alumni stall in the foyer of the hall. Memorabilia can also be purchased at the Unisa Shop.
