Formalwear Lending Services

Our Formalwear Lending Service enables all members of our College community (UG, PG, and SCR members) to borrow high quality formalwear for events in and out of College. Thanks to generous donations from our alumni and supporters, we have over sixty dresses (sizes 6-16) and four dinner suits and shirts (various sizes) available to lend.

Students can request to view the items in person at arranged times or can check out @chads_couture on Instagram for photos of the items available. We will also hold drop-in events before College events like the Hope Ball, Candlemas, and Summer Ball. Items may be borrowed for up to two weeks and should be returned in good condition ready for dry cleaning.

Students borrowing items make a £10 payment to partly cover dry cleaning costs (the College subsidises the cost of dry cleaning) made to
