Bachelor’s and master’s regalia from the University Store are made from recycled PET and can be recycled after graduation through a special regalia recycling program at Pitt. The University of Pittsburgh’s regalia is provided by Oak Hall, which manufactures caps and gowns made of 100% post-consumer recycled PET (the most common plastic material used in products like plastic bottles, food containers, and clothing fiber). Using recycled PET reduces manufacturing emissions by 55% and uses 50% fewer petroleum products that traditional polyester.
If you decide you don’t want to keep your cap and gown, recycle your regalia after graduation at any of the University Stores, April 30 through May 31 – just look for the regalia recycling collection bins. Caps and gowns collected through the program are recycled into rugs and animal bedding.

The University of Pittsburgh plans to host a combination of in-person and virtual ceremonies for the Class of 2021. A maximum of two guests per graduate will be permitted to attend these in-person events. In order to properly maintain physical distance between graduates, guests, faculty and staff, several ceremonies will be hosted over multiple days. All ceremonies will be streamed online to encourage families and friends to watch and celebrate virtually. Some schools have opted for virtual ceremonies based on feedback from graduate and professional students. Click here for ceremony dates and to learn more.
