Remove Gown Hire

Why are we campaigning to Remove Gown Hire for Graduation?

Students graduating from the University of Reading have to pay a mandatory £45 to cover the cost of gown hire. This is another example of a hidden cost that students are not expecting to pay for whilst at University, on top of inflated tuition fees and increasing accommodation costs.

Over 260 students voted on Change It! in favour of RUSU campaigning to remove gown hire. The RUSU Student Officer team are campaigning to remove gown hire for two years, or until change is achieved.
