All gowns cost £40.

Selling a gown

We buy second-hand BA, BA status, MA, MA status, MPhil, MEng, MMath and MSci gowns in good condition for £20.

We can now pay for gowns in cash at the point of sale.

Please note, we do not currently buy undergraduate gowns or other graduate gowns.

Hiring a gown

We lease out second-hand BA, BA status, MA and MA status gowns for either a week or an entire academic year.

To hire a gown, you will need a cash deposit of £40.

If you return the gown within a week, you will be charged £10 and refunded £30.

If you return the gown at the end of the academic year (before 1 August), you will be charged £15 and refunded £25. After this date, the gown will be deemed sold and your deposit will be lost.

We may not accept the return of a gown that's been damaged.

 

To buy, hire or sell a gown, visit the GU during opening hours. Please note that we are unable to reserve gowns in advance.
