Academic dress for staff participating in the academic procession
If you wish to participate in the academic procession, Graduation Services can assist with academic dress if you do not have your own. The University can lend gowns, mortarboards and hoods in specific degree colours (subject to availability) to all graduates of Flinders University, free of charge.
Please note, academic dress for postgraduate degrees, particularly doctorates, is limited and students will be given preference for hire, therefore we cannot guarantee availability of these. We can offer a plain black gown and mortarboard if your degree colours are unavailable, or if you are a graduate from another University.
If you want to wear degree colours from another University you will need to contact them to arrange hire or purchase.
Academic dress must be collected from and returned to the University. You may wish to bring a bag or coat hanger. If you are unable to collect academic dress yourself, please send a colleague to do so on your behalf. Dates, times and location will be advised in your confirmation email, approximately 7 days prior to your selected ceremony.
Buy academic dress
Academic dress may be purchased from:
- The Regalia Shop, 43/81 Carrington Street, Adelaide. Phone: 8232 2955
