CAPS AND GOWNS
Doctoral: rentals are black, with the exception of the Jacobs SMBS regalia which is blue and green, and the School of Dental Medicine regalia which is blue and black. Custom UB regalia (for purchase) is blue.
Tassels are available in the color appropriate to each school within UB.
Hoods are lined in blue and gold. The width of the velvet border varies by degree, while the color of the velvet border indicates the academic discipline; PhD hoods are trimmed in royal blue.
When you tell your academic discipline and degree to a bookstore representative (bachelors/masters) or when you input it into the ordering website (doctoral student rentals), you will be assisted in selecting the appropriate regalia.
