Academic dress is mandatory at Regent's University London graduation ceremonies and is made up of a robe, hood and hat. The colour and style of these items are dependent on your qualification.
You are required to order a gown from our official gown supplier, Wippell's Gowning. From the web page you will need to select Regent’s University London from the list of universities, then your qualification. You'll receive email instructions with the link to the gown hire booking form.
If you're graduating, you can collect your graduation gown on the day of your ceremony. When you arrive at Regent's, you'll be directed to register and then you'll go to a room where you can put on your gown.
On your graduation day
When you should arrive
Please arrive at Regent's earlier than the start time of your ceremony. If you're graduating, you should give yourself enough time to register, collect your tickets, put on your gown and to make the short walk to the ceremony.
If you're attending as a guest, your tickets will be given to your graduand at the registration desk at Regent's on the day. Guest tickets are not named.
Please arrive at St Marylebone Parish Church at least 30 minutes before the ceremony is due to start.
Any latecomers risk missing their ceremony, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time - we recommend giving yourself at least an hour ahead of your ceremony.
We do not provide cloakroom facilities on campus. For graduates, we recommend that you leave any personal belongings with family members during the ceremony, or leave your belongings under your allocated seat at your ceremony. Please note, it is your responsibility to look after your things, and we are not liable for the loss of any personal belongings.
If you're graduating, when you arrive at the main entrance at Regent's, you'll be asked to register in Herringham Hall.
You will be given a card with your name and seat number on it. Keep this safe, as it's really important. You must sit in the seat you've been given, as this represents your place in the ceremony and when you'll be called up to the stage.
When you're called to walk across the stage, you'll be asked to give the card to one of our graduation team members.
Once registered, you will be directed to a second room for gowning. You will then make your way to the ceremony at St Marylebone Parish Church.
If you have time before the ceremony, we recommend visiting the photography studios beforehand to have your professional photograph taken. You can also do this after the ceremony.
At the ceremony
Whether you're a graduand or a guest, please arrive at St Marylebone Parish Church at least 30 minutes before the ceremony is due to start. If you are late to your ceremony it will start in your absence and you'll risk missing your chance to walk across the stage.
There is no seating plan for guests, so if you're a guest you may sit anywhere apart from the reserved seating area for graduates. If you're a graduating student, you'll find your seat number on the name card you received when you completed registration.
The Master of Ceremonies will provide graduates and guests with some brief instructions at the start of the event.
Ceremonies are opened by the entrance of the Academic Procession. The Director of Student Experience will declare the ceremony open. There will be a speech from the Vice-Chancellor, before graduands are presented in order of degree course. Remember to stay in your allocated seats until the ceremony ends, to make sure everyone walks across the stage in the right order.
Regent’s University London staff will let you know when it's your turn to walk across the stage.
The Director of Student Experience will declare the ceremony over, after which the Academic Procession will stand and exit.
What happens after the ceremony?
You will be asked to leave row by row after the Academic Procession.
Then you'll make your way to Tuke Lawns, on Regent's campus, for a reception with drinks and canapés. There will be an opportunity for more photographs, and if you're a graduate you'll be asked to return your gown before you leave.
After your ceremony ends, you're invited to a reception with canapés and drinks. The reception will be held at Regent's University London on Tuke Lawns. Only guests with graduation tickets may join this post-ceremony event.
