Hiring your academic regalia

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, graduation ceremonies are unable to proceed.

If you’re going to your graduation ceremony you’ll need to wear full academic regalia. Academic dress hire is included in the graduation fee

Full regalia consists of:

  • gown
  • hood and/or stole
  • trencher (or other head dress, depending on your qualification).

Ordering your regalia

Regalia for Swinburne graduations can be hired from our official provider GFP Graduations.

As soon as you’ve indicated that you will be attending your ceremony go to the GFP Graduations website to order the right regalia for you.

Collecting your regalia

You collect your regalia from the venue on the day of the ceremony.

Regalia collection opens two hours before the start of your ceremony. Report to the registration and gowning room in Plenary when you get there, on the lower ground floor of the Convention Centre building.
