Academic Costume Hire from QUB
Your academic costume can be collected from the Gown Store an hour before the ceremony in which you are part of the academic procession.
Your academic costume must be returned to the Gown Store promptly after the ceremony. For those attending more than one ceremony, after all ceremonies relevant to yourself are finished your academic costume should be returned.
Academic Costume Hire from other Institutions (Non QUB Gowns only)
The date for collecting your academic costume from the Gown Store is Friday 8 December 2017 between 9.30am and 4pm.
Your academic costume must be individually signed for at the point of collection from and return to the Gown Store. You will be asked to produce your staff card at this point. Your academic costume must be returned to the Gown Store promptly after the ceremony.
The Gown Store is now permanently located on level 1 of the Administration Building and this is where academic costume will be issued from. The entrance is via the doors facing into the rear car park.
The University will cover the cost of the hire of academic costume for all staff participating in an academic procession. This applies to both Queen's costume and costume sourced from other universities.
N.B. Hire fees for academic costume will be charged if it is not returned on time.
Hire of Academic Costume from other Universities
If you require academic costume from another institution, we will endeavour to source it for you. However, it must be noted that in some cases in which our suppier may have difficulty sourcing your costume they may send a generic costume of the country you graduated from. We can also offer the nearest equivalent Queen's University costume.
