In keeping with College tradition, academic gowns are worn at high table dinners, at most College meetings, at debates and at certain special College events.
It is recommended that all students living in residence purchase a gown at the beginning of term. For those who expect to use gowns rarely, the Porter's Lodge has a limited supply of used gowns that may be borrowed for an event by leaving your student T-card or other photo ID (remember you need your T-card for access to the dining halls).
The price is $125, tax included.
Academic gowns can be purchased online.
