In order to graduate, you must wear the official University of Southampton academic dress. You can hire your Graduation gown ahead of your ceremony from Graduation Attire, the University’s official gown supplier.

When booking your gown online, Graduation Attire will provide you with the correct University gown and hood based on the award you are due to receive.

The deadline to book your gown has been extended until Wednesday 5 July. If you book your gown after this date you will incur a late fee.

Please note that you will only be able to book your gown once you have registered for Graduation. Register for Graduation now.
