Reserving your regalia

The regalia rental site is now closed.

Regalia will be available for pick up on Friday, Oct. 20, from 2:30 – 3:45 p.m., in the Grand Hall (40 Charlotte Street). Gowns and hoods must be returned following the convocation ceremony. The souvenir academic cap and tassel are yours to keep.

How to wear your regalia

Academic dress is worn at graduation ceremonies and includes the academic robe (gown), hood and academic cap (mortarboard).

Bachelor's degree: If you are receiving a bachelor’s degree, see the proper way to put on your regalia.

Master’s and PhD degree: You will carry your hood over your left arm. On stage, you will kneel on a kneeler and be hooded by either UNB’s President or Chancellor.

All UNB graduands must wear appropriate regalia (gown, hood and academic cap) and should consider the distance covered by the academic procession when selecting footwear.

UNB asks that graduands do not take personal belongings such as purses, cell phones, backpacks, confetti or balloons on stage.
