It is recommended that all graduate students attend a Thesis formatting workshop in the early stages of their thesis writing process.
To book the Thesis Defence Room in the Bennett Library, contact the graduate assistant in your home department/school/faculty/program. Graduate assistants are responsible for bookings with the Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies.
If you are booked for a thesis defence or a defence rehearsal, you may borrow a key to the Thesis Defence Room from the Bennett Loans/Checkout counter.
For additional thesis defence information, visit the Dean of Graduate Studies - Degree Completion page.
Please note the SFU Library Thesis Submission Deadline Dates. If you do not meet the submission deadline, you will normally be required to register in the subsequent semester. A late submission fee may be assessed instead. Late submissions may also mean you are excluded from Convocation.
When your thesis is ready for submission, go to the SFU Library Thesis Registration System. Note: If co-authoring a project, each author will need to register the project.
