Graduating? Congratulations! You have survived semester after semester of hard work and financial pressures. Now you deserve some recognition, and there is no better way to commemorate and immortalize your accomplishments than a set of graduation photos. Of course, to make it official, you need a graduation gown. The Thompson Rivers University Students’ Union has rental gowns and all of the corresponding regalia for your photography needs.

How to Rent Graduation Gowns

To rent a graduation gown, visit the Members’ Services Desk in the Students’ Union Building. To be sure you can get a gown during the graduation season, phone the Members’ Services Desk at (250) 828-5289 to make a reservation. When you pick up a gown, remember to bring a credit card or cash for the $60 security deposit. When you return the gown undamaged your $60 deposit will be returned to you.
