Dress Code & Gown Hire
For your University of Glasgow graduation ceremony, regardless of your prior graduation status, it is essential to adhere to a formal dress code that befits the occasion. Please take note of the following attire guidelines:
→ Dark trousers and jacket, skirt, or a suit paired with a white shirt or blouse
→ White or dark dress
→ Dark shoes or boots
→ If you choose to wear a tie, it should be black
Additionally, please be aware that hats are not traditionally worn during our graduation ceremonies. While these ceremonies are indeed celebratory in nature, we maintain a formal dress code that reflects the significance of the event.
We also permit the wearing of national or military dress, should you wish to do so, as part of this formal attire.
To secure your academic gown for the graduation ceremony, please follow these important steps:
Gown Rental: You should make arrangements to rent your academic gown directly through Ede & Ravenscroft.
Early Booking: It is advisable to hire your gown as early as possible, and we recommend doing so no later than three weeks before the scheduled ceremony. You do not need to wait until you have enrolled for graduation to initiate your robe rental.
Order Confirmation: When collecting your gown and hood on the day of the ceremony, please ensure you have a record of your order confirmation details readily available.
Should you have any questions or require assistance regarding your gown hire, we encourage you to reach out to Ede & Ravenscroft directly for prompt assistance.
Your academic gown is an integral part of the ceremony, and we appreciate your attention to these gown rental details to ensure a seamless and memorable graduation experience at the University of Glasgow.
