Return of Academic Dress
(Only applicable to graduands of Postgraduate Diploma in Education, Undergraduate Degrees, Higher Diploma and Diploma programmes)
(If you are a graduand of Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Education, Master of Philosophy and Taught Master Degrees programmes, please click here.)
Graduands are required to return academic dress to the Tai Po business outlet of the University’s designated supplier, Victoria Uniform (VU) on or before 27 January 2022.
Regardless of the date of collecting the academic dress from VU, graduands are reminded that the deadline to return the academic dress is 27 January 2022. An extension fee will be charged if you do not return the academic dress on or before 27 January 2022.
Note: If you collect the academic dress later than 1 August 2022, please ignore the 'Return Date' (還袍日期) pre-printed on the 'Gown Rental & Deposit' form after you had completed the online registration through the website of VU, as this is the limitation of the supplier's gown rental system that a return date later than 27 January 2022 will still be shown. Once again, you are to be reminded to return the academic dress on or before 27 January 2022, regardless of the date of your academic dress collection from VU.
Examples of pick-up and the fixed return deadline (i.e. 27 January 2022) are listed below for your reference:
Pick-up date Pre-printed return date by VU Return deadline Example 1 1 Aug 2021 27 Jan 2022 27 Jan 2022 Example 2 4 Aug 2021 30 Jan 2022 27 Jan 2022 Example 3 1 Nov 2021 29 April 2022 27 Jan 2022
Graduands are required to pay the deposit amount stipulated in the printout of the 'Gown Rental & Deposit' form. Deposit is refundable when the loan items are returned in proper condition within the loan and collection period (i.e. between 1 August 2021 and 27 January 2022).
Graduands will be charged for the extension fee which will be based on 7-day period and will be deducted from the deposit if items are returned after the deadline (i.e. 27 January 2022).
When returning the academic dress, you are required to present the 'Gown Rental & Deposit' form together with the set of academic dress. A full refund of deposit will be returned to you provided that the items are returned in proper condition and within the loan and collection period. Otherwise, the fee charged, if any will be deducted from the deposit amount, according to the amount specified in 'Loan of Academic Dress' (for Postgraduate Diploma in Education, Undergraduate Degrees, Higher Diploma and Diploma programmes).
Please note that a long queue for return of academic dress may exist on weekday evenings and/or the return deadline, 27 January 2022 owing to the high turnover rate of users.
