Faculty and staff

Faculty and staff are invited to participate in the academic procession. If you have your own regalia, and plan on participating, notify us at facgown@unb.ca by Friday, Oct. 11 so we can ensure enough chairs are available at the ceremony.

The piper will lead the Associated Alumni Honour Guard, graduands and members of faculty and staff in a procession from the Grand Hall, through King Square, to the Imperial Theatre.

Reserve regalia

Faculty and staff participating in the academic procession must wear regalia. They will gather in the Grand Hall at least 45 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony, and will be lined up for the academic procession by a Marshal.

Reserve your regalia

Regalia pick-up: Friday, Oct. 25, from 2:30 – 3:45 p.m., in the Grand Hall (40 Charlotte Street)

Regalia return: Immediately after the ceremony in the Grand Hall

Purchase regalia

To purchase regalia, specific to the university from which you graduated, you can do so through Gaspard at grad_sales@gaspard.ca or by calling 1-800-380-8214.

You can also order UNB-specific regalia. The lead time is generally six weeks.


Following the ceremony, graduates, their guests and ceremony participants are invited to a Convocation Reception in the Grand Hall where light refreshments will be served.
