Faculty and staff

Faculty and staff are invited to participate in the academic procession. The piper will lead the Associated Alumni Honour Guard, graduands and members of faculty and staff in a procession from the Quad to the back of the G. Forbes Elliot Athletics Centre.

Rent regalia

Regalia rentals may be placed online in early March.

Purchase regalia

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

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

If you have your own regalia, and plan on participating, please notify us at facgown@unb.ca by Friday, May 3 so we can ensure enough chairs are reserved at the ceremony.


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