Where can I rent a graduation cap and gown?

Updated November 24, 2020

SUB Photo provides the cap and gown for grad photos taken in our studio, but if you are having photos taken in (or visiting us from) another province you might need to rent, borrow, or buy your graduation attire.  Here's how.

Where can I rent a graduation cap and gown?

Students visiting us at SUB Photo normally do not need to rent any academic attire.  If we are your Official Photographer then we will provide the official academic regalia for your program - that's the cap, gown, and hood or stole you need.

The most popular supplier for gown rentals in Canada is Gaspard.  They provide the official cap and gown for ceremonies at the University of Alberta, University of Calgary, Athabasca University, and many more across Canada.  You can reach them for rentals or to purchase your own To rent gowns and hoods for photos taken out-of-province, please contact Gaspard at  You may also purchase graduation attire from them if you wish.

University of Alberta cap & gown

University of Alberta undergraduate students (bachelors and masters) traditionally wear a black robe and square mortarboard cap.  The cap is decorated with a green-and-gold tassel to represent the U of A school colours. Each faculty has a unique sash colour to distinguish itself from the others; you can view the official program colours on the University of Alberta 'Convocation Traditions' page.

Those receiving a Doctorate degree wear a substantial gown decorated with velvet panels and a long hood featuring the green and gold colours of your alma mater.  SUB Photo is pleased to provide the official UofA PhD robes for you to wear when having photos taken in our studio.

Athabasca University cap & gown

Athabasca University graduates wear a black gown with a unique hood draped over their shoulders to represent the degree received.  The colours may be viewed on the Athabasca University convocation traditions page. SUB Photo is happy to provide the appropriate attire for your photo session.
