Gown Hire & Academic Dress content

Gown Hire & Academic Dress

Gown Hire & Academic Dress

Higher Education graduands are required to wear a gown and hood, which you can order from our official suppliers Ede and Ravenscroft. It is your responsibility to arrange for the hire of your gown – these will be delivered to Queen's Hall for you to collect on the day of the ceremony.

Please take care when ordering your hood as there are different hoods for each qualification level. Take a look at our gown guide below, and if you need further help or advice, please ask a member of college staff.

Further Education graduands are not required to wear a gown but are expected to dress appropriately in academic dress.

We ask that graduands dress formally for the occasion. This could be national dress, dark suit, dark tie, dark skirt or dress, white shirt or blouse (no jeans). 

Academic hoods are designed to hook onto the top buttons of shirts or blouses, so please remember that when choosing your outfit.

Special arrangements for guests

If you or your guests have mobility difficulties, or any other disability that might affect your enjoyment of the ceremony, please tell us when you register so that we can reserve appropriate seating for you.

Young Children

Young Children

Our ceremony is not really suitable for babies or very young children so we recommend you do not bring them into the hall.

However, we know it can be difficult finding childcare, so if you are bringing younger guests to our ceremony, please try to ensure they remain as quiet as possible so as not to spoil other guests’ enjoyment of the occasion.

Guests leaving the hall during the ceremony may have to wait for a steward to readmit them at an appropriate time.
