The University Career Center launched the Campus Career Closet in 2017 as a way to provide students access to FREE professional attire appropriate for career fairs, interviews, networking events, and the workplace. Inventory includes suits, blazers, skirts, button-down shirts, and more. Our goal is to help students look their best throughout their job search so they can make a positive impression as they enter the professional world!

How it Works

The Campus Career Closet is located in the University Career Center on the 3rd floor of Mary Martin Hall. For information on an accessible location, please call 334-844-4744.

Students wishing to visit the Campus Career Closet should make an appointment online via Handshake. For the safety of our students, you will need to wear a mask while visiting the Campus Career Closet and use hand sanitizer before and after using this resource. Limit one student in the closet at a time.

This service is available only to currently enrolled Auburn University students. 

Students may take up to 4 individual apparel items (a suit equals 2 items) per academic year.

*Please note that the Campus Career Closet cannot guarantee the availability of all sizes and types of items.
