Gowns Gowns Ordering your gown To secure a gown for your graduation you must book by Thursday 7th March 2019. There is extremely limited availability for gowns on the day so we are unable to guarantee that there will be a spare for you. We encourage everyone to wear academic dress (gown, hood and hat) at their graduation ceremony. It is not compulsory but most graduates dress up on the day. Ede & Ravenscroft is the company that supplies academic dress for both institutions.

From a practical point of view, it’s best if graduates wear a shirt or blouse so that the hood can be fastened onto a button. Alternatively, bring a safety pin. Graduates may also want to bring hairgrips which can assist in keeping their hats in place. Collecting and returning Once you have collected your graduate ticket/name card, please follow the signs to the gowning area on Level 2. Members of staff will also be on hand to direct you. After the ceremony, you can return your gown on Level 2 (green side) in the Gown Returns area. Please do so by 5.30pm. Cancellation and refunds Once you have hired your gown, you have a period of 14 days from the date of your order, where you can cancel your booking, and receive a full refund. If a period of 14 or more days has passed since you made your booking, a refund can be processed (minus a £1.50 administration fee). To obtain a refund please contact Ede & Ravenscroft directly.
