The University’s new Tribute Garden and Diamond Wood allows us to fondly remember and commemorate our loved ones in the beautiful York grounds.
If you are interested in creating a memorial to a relative, friend or colleague on York’s campus, the University’s tribute giving webpages are now live. We can help you leave a lasting memorial to a life or a special event, and at the same time support current or future students.
Every tribute at the University of York includes a commemoration in our Tribute Garden and a tree planted in the beautiful Diamond Wood. We also invite you to add a short summary of the reasons behind the tribute to our online Record of Tribute and to hold a short ceremony to unveil the commemoration if you wish. Commemorations can take the form of a boulder or a beautifully-sculpted plaque in the shape of a leaf.
Part of the gift you give to create your tribute will go towards supporting future generations of York students through our scholarships and bursaries.
