Clothing Closet

The Clothing Closet provides CSUSB students with access to FREE professional and business casual attire that is appropriate for career fairs, interviews, and the workplace.

It is important for students to look professional throughout their job search and when they enter the professional world. Through this service we want to help students look their best and make a lasting positive impression. The attire is generously donated by faculty, staff, alumni, employers, local businesses, and community members. 

How it Works: 

  • Students can stop by the Clothing Closet during Career Center office hours. Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Students are encouraged to browse the Closet often. All attire is FREE to students.
  • Sign in with you student ID at the front desk.
  • After you find what you need in the Closet, bring the items to the front desk for checkout.
  • Inventory arrives on a regular basis.
  • Consider building your professional wardrobe before it is needed. 

NOTE: In times of high demand, the amount of clothing that students can take may be limited.
