Ordering regalia

If you have not ordered your Academic Regalia, please do so urgently online at www.masseygowns.org.nz. If you require more information email info@masseygowns.org.nz, telephone 06 350 4166, visit website www.masseygowns.org.nz or - for gowning - emergencies please call 021 548-917.


For your regalia collection please go to the Flax and Fern Rooms on the first floor of the Student Services Trust Building above Tussock Café. Your regalia can be collected on Wednesday 29 May 2019 between 9.00am - 7.00pm or on Thursday 30 May 2019 8.00am - 1.00pm (for Ceremony Two only). Limited free parking will be available around campus on these two days. It is not essential but it is helpful to bring your gowning confirmation letter/receipt with you when collecting your Academic Regalia from the Flax and Fern Rooms. A friend can pick up your regalia for you but then you will not have an opportunity to confirm the regalia for size.

Academic Regalia must be returned on the day of Graduation, unless attending Māori or Pasifika celebrations (Friday 1 June). Academic Dress Hire staff will be on the Ground Floor of the Michael Fowler Centre, Thursday 31 May between 11.00am - 5.30pm to receive your regalia back.

You will be invoiced a second hire fee if your Academic Regalia is not returned on time and in good order. When returning your Regalia please ensure you collect a receipt to provide proof of return. Late Academic Regalia returns can be made on Friday 1 June between 10.00am - 2.00pm in the Pyramid, Massey University, Entrance A, Wallace Street, Mt Cook, Wellington
