NOTE: The health and well-being of our students is the highest priority for us. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we have suspended academic dress loans at this time.
Graduates who wish to have their portrait taken in academic dress have several options.
Our academic dress vendor, Gaspard Inc., offers month-long rentals of academic dress starting at $36.50 (plus tax and shipping to an address of your choosing.) This includes a black gown and the academic hood that represents your program. Please visit gaspard.ca for further assistance.
Lifetouch Photography is usually at our Convocation ceremonies offering on-site portrait sittings. Their studio has Dalhousie hoods on hand, and they are currently acepting appointments for portrait sittings.
The following list of photographers in the Halifax area also have Dalhousie hoods on hand and are taking graduate portraits while respecting social distancing guidelines. We will continue to update this list as we learn of more studios with a compliment of Dalhousie hoods:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be informed once academic dress loans from the Registrar's Office have resumed.
