Gown Hire

All graduates are required to wear the University’s academic dress.

Please book your gown online here.

You will normally only be able to book your Gown Hire once you have received your invite email. 

IMPORTANT - The Gown booking site will show your original ceremony time but please do not worry as we will ensure that your gown is available for the ceremony that you are down to attend.

You will collect your gown on the day of the Ceremony. After the ceremony you should return your gown by 6.00pm. There will be collection points around the Foster Building.
