Such was the demand for seats from friends and family, the university had to stage ceremonies over two days at the home of English football.
Many graduates took to the stands of the famous stadium after collecting their certificates on Wednesday (July 20) and Thursday (July 21), to celebrate their success in the style of teams lifting the FA Cup.
Vice chancellor Professor Peter John said: "Graduation is a day when graduands, their families and friends can take pride.
"It is a chance to celebrate the success which has come only with a considerable commitment.
"UWL has acquired a remarkable reputation for high quality education, closely linked to employment, in which we take great pride.
"All of our graduands today are evidence of our success."
Honorary degrees were also presented over the two days to a number of leading names in their fields, including the British Concert Orchestra's principal conductor Frank Renton and The Times associate editor Lord Daniel Finkelstein.
UWL describes itself as the "career university", as it says 96% of students are in employment or further training within six months of graduating.
The Apprentice judge Claude Littner, who last year opened up about his ruthless reputation, is among UWL's alumni.
The university was recently granted permission to build homes in Ealing, despite objections from some residents.
