Faculty and staff

All members of 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, Sept. 22 so we can ensure enough chairs are available at the ceremony.

Borrow regalia

To borrow regalia from UNB Saint John’s inventory, email your name, height and degree information to facgown@unb.ca by Thursday, Sept. 21. Unfortunately, requests made after this date cannot be accommodated. A limited number of PhD gowns and hoods are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.
