Reserve your regalia

Information on how you can reserve regalia for the ceremony, as well as pick up and drop off, will be provided at a later date.

Gowns and hoods must be returned following the convocation ceremony. For Bachelor’s and Master’s degree recipients, the souvenir academic cap and tassel are yours to keep. For PhDs, the doctoral academic beefeater caps must be returned.

Academic dress

Academic dress is worn at graduation ceremonies and includes the academic robe (gown), academic cap (mortarboard or doctoral academic beefeater cap) and hood. The regalia worn by each participant depends upon the academic level attained: Bachelors, Masters and Doctorates. See a guide to UNB's ceremonial dress.

All UNB graduands must wear appropriate regalia 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, phones, backpacks, jackets, flowers, confetti or balloons on stage.
