Where to hire your regalia

The University of Auckland works closely with our official and preferred supplier, Academic Dress Hire, to ensure the quality of the regalia hired to students for graduation. This is particularly important for the correct colour of hoods as these are specified in the University’s regulations.

Academic Dress Hire uses the profits generated, through the Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust, to support a variety of scholarships, grants and donations at the university and other institutions.
