At the invitation of the President, new professors (installandi) with one guest are invited to attend the ceremony as well as the banquet following the ceremony, free of charge.

Visiting and adjunct professors are also invited to the ceremony and banquet, with one guest. Those categories will be mentioned in the printed programme but will not be participating in the ceremony.

Other guests to the ceremony only are welcome to attend free of charge, but an entrance card is required.

Our recommendation is that children should not attend the conferment ceremony.


Formal dress is required at the conferment ceremony and the banquet. This may be either white tie and tails with a white vest or an evening gown. Orders/medallions may be worn. An alternative may be to wear the national costume. There are no dress requirements for guests who will only attend the ceremony, but smart casual is appreciated.


An obligatory rehearsal will take place in the Blue Hall at the City Hall at 4 p.m. the day before the conferment ceremony, i.e. Thursday 24 September. This usually takes about 1 1/2 hours.
