Career Closet

Free professional clothing for students and alumni!



About the Career Closet

The Career Closet is a space where students/alumni can find free, professional clothing to help set them apart for an interview, internship, career fair, or any other professional event in their lives.​

​Open for visitors Monday through Friday, from 9am-4pm, by appointment only​

The only reason I was able to compete in the XMC Case Competition this year was because of the career closet….I didn't have enough money to go out and buy a suit to compete. Lucky for me, I was taking a class with Cat at the time and she told me about how I could get a suit for free….The career closet is a huge help for students like me who need formal attire but don't have the resources to go get it themselves. ​
