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 31 May 2021.
Regardless of the date of collecting the academic dress from VU, graduands are reminded that the deadline to return the academic dress is 31 May 2021. Extension fee will be charged if you do not return the academic dress on or before 31 May 2021.
Note: If you collect the academic dress later than 15 December 2020, please ignore the pre-printed 'Return Date' 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 31 May 2021 will be shown. Once again, you are to be reminded to return the academic dress on or before 31 May 2021, regardless of the date of your gown collection from VU.
Examples of pick-up and the fixed return deadline (i.e. 31 May 2021) are listed below for your reference:

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. 31 May 2021).
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); and
Please note that a long queue for return of academic dress may exist on weekday evenings and/or the return deadline, 31 May 2021 owing to the high turnover rate of users.
