Deadline to order graduation ceremony gowns

Academic staff attending their school’s graduation ceremony in December are reminded the deadline to order a gown is Wednesday 27 November.

You can now order your academic dress for graduation ceremonies


Attendance involves wearing the relevant academic dress, being a part of the procession into the Great Hall and sitting on stage during the ceremony.

Gowns can be ordered directly from Ede and Ravenscroft. Staff who have ordered in the past will have received an email directly from the company asking them to do so again.

Any new staff will need to email the University’s Graduation Office so an account to be set up for them.

Staff do not have to pay to borrow a gown for these occasions.

Information on how to order and where to collect is available via the Student Education Service website.
