Academic dress

Graduands are required to wear USQ academic dress during graduation ceremonies. We encourage you to wear smart attire, not casual clothing or casual footwear (thongs or sneakers). Academic dress can be quite warm, so keep this in mind when selecting your clothing for the day.

Procedures for collecting your academic dress will vary depending on your graduation location. Academic dress colours and regulations for each field of study are available.

Hiring your academic dress

Academic dress is available to hire for Australian and International graduands. Please ensure you follow the correct hiring procedures relevant to your graduation location. You should also familiarise yourself with the conditions of hiring academic dress.

Purchasing academic dress

While we do not sell academic dress, you can purchase it privately from Raymond W. Bredin & Son Pty Ltd. Please complete the form that is relevant to you, ensuring the address you use is where you would like the gown delivered. Bredin’s will contact USQ to verify your order details to ensure you have the correct gown made.
