Your Photo Day on Campus in Southern Sydney

Having your photo taken in your academic dress is a really important part of your graduation experience. Now that NSW Health has eased some restrictions, we’re really pleased to be able to offer you, your family and friends the opportunity to register to attend our Graduation Photo days, which will be held at the UOW Southern Sydney Campus on 15 and 16 December.

You will receive a reminder email the day before you are due to arrive for your photo opportunity. Please ensure you are checking in and in line with all COVID-19 requirements while attending campus.

All participating students who will be wearing a gown must be double vaccinated. You will be asked to show your vaccination certificate.

Please stay healthy and safe and if you feel sick on the day of your booking contact the team by emailing and we will arrange another time in the New Year to accommodate you.

What to expect at your Graduation Photo day:

  • You will be able to borrow your academic dress for an hour and take photos on our campus grounds. 
  • The academic dress that you will borrow is: 

               -A UOW graduation gown 
               -Trencher/bonnet (graduation hat)* 
               -A coloured hood (specific to your degree) 

  • There will be no charge for you to take part. 
  • The Graduation photo day will be a COVID-Safe event.
  • All gowns and hats will be laundered between uses. 

UOW will not 'provide' any professional photographers during the week. You are of course welcome to arrange a photographer to take photos for you at your own expense.

You are welcome to bring friends and family as long as they are double vaccinated as per NSW Health guidelines and check-in using the Service NSW QR codes on campus. Your group will need to adhere to capacity limits while indoors on campus.

*if you have received your graduation hat in the mail - please bring this with you
