Graduation is a friendly yet formal occasion so most graduands and guests dress smartly. As this is a formal academic event, graduands are required to wear gowns. Gowns are supplied by Ede & Ravenscroft, who supply gowns to many higher education institutions. You can book your gown for the day on their website.
When wearing an academic gown or hat, it's best if graduands wear a shirt or blouse so that the hood of the gown can be fastened on a button. Alternatively, bring a safety pin. You may also wish to bring some hair clips to ensure your hat fits well.
All personal belongings should be left with your guests as they cannot be taken with you to your seat.
