Many Cal Poly students lack the resources they need to be successful. To support our students, Career Services maintains a Clothing Closet to provide students with free, high-quality work clothes to create a memorable first impression at career fairs and interviews.

For Students: Accessing the Closet

To support you in dressing for success, Career Services has collected new and gently-used professional clothing and shoes from the campus and community. Clothing is free, available to all students, and does not need to be returned. Chest binders are also available to borrow from the closet. To access the Clothing Closet:

  • Summer availability: We will be refreshing the closet over the summer and this service will only be available by appointment. For appointments, please email Erika Wagner at
  • Location: Building 124, Front Office
