Before the Ceremony

The robes you order will be available in the robing room in the Gerallt Jones Studio, Parry Williams Building (Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies), prior to the ceremonies and should be returned there afterwards. Robes are available from 8.30am onwards, and must be returned by 6.30pm.

Attached inside your robe will be a ticket with a name and reference number on it. This ticket must not be removed under any circumstances as it will be needed to register the return of the robe after the ceremony. Please inform one of the robe company's staff in the robing room if it becomes detached.

Dressing Tips

For comfort and practicality it is recommended that you wear a top or shirt that buttons up to the neck, as this makes it easier to attach the hood over your gown. Alternatively, you may find a supply of safety pins useful. You may also find it useful to bring some hair grips to assist in holding your cap in place. If you need an extra large or small gown please make sure you specify this when placing your order with the gown company.
