In December 2012, coinciding with the Graduation ceremonies of that year, five ceremonial gowns and an Honorary gown worn by past Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors were on display in the University Library's Panizzi Room, alongside historical photographs and film footage from the University Archives collection.
View footage from the 1976 and 1979 graduation ceremonies, including our Foundation Chancellor receiving his ceremonial gown.
