Graduation ceremony dress requirements for most degrees include three pieces – gown, trencher and hood, which can all be hired online prior to your ceremony or on the day in store.

The standard three piece graduation dress package is $79, if booked 7 days or more before your ceremony, or $110 if the booking is made on the day or within 7 days of your graduation ceremony.

The three piece hire package includes:
  • A gown. For an additional $30 you may select to purchase and keep your gown.
  • A hood or stole in the colours signifying your degree.
  • An official Sydney University branded trencher (hat) that is yours to keep.
  • A personal dresser to assist you in the fitting and dressing on your graduation day.

Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander stoles are also available for hire.

Upgrade to the premium package and receive a glass of sparkling following your ceremony. Also, refreshments for you and two guests, a lapel pin and a 10% USYD Store discount voucher for just $30.

When booking, ensure all information regarding degree title, ceremony date and time are correct. This will allow our staff to coordinate the hood colours as per University dress standards. Please note that not all graduate diplomas and certificates require a hood or stole.

All pieces except the trencher (hat) must be returned to the USYD Store by the allocated time following your graduation ceremony to avoid a late fee. Return times are subject to your ceremony time.
