More Information

LAWRENCE — The Professional Clothing Closet at the University of Kansas will open Feb. 1.

The closet, located in the University Career Center, 110 Burge Union, will be open year-round to provide KU students with free professional clothing for career fairs, interviews and professional work settings.

Delta Epsilon Iota, a career-focused honor society and organizer of the Professional Clothing Closet, held a used clothing drive in October and collected 429 items.

“We are ecstatic about the large amount of clothes donated to the Professional Clothing Closet,” said Nate Phillips, DEI president. “KU students will now have access to a large collection of free interview attire.”

KU students are allowed up to five items. Small monetary donations are welcomed but not required. All monetary donations made this spring will be given to the Willow Domestic Violence Center in Lawrence.

Dressing rooms are available, and the Professional Clothing Closet’s inventory can be accessed at KUCareerHawk.com/clothing.

To help students prepare for the University Career Fair on Feb. 9, the Professional Clothing Closet will be open 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 1, 2 and 7.

Starting Feb. 8, the Professional Clothing Closet will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Students do not need an appointment.

Donations will continue to be accepted and can be dropped off year-round at the University Career Center. Any unusable clothing will be donated to the local Goodwill.

Delta Epsilon Iota strives to promote the ideals of dedication, enthusiasm and initiative at KU through student leadership, special programs coordinated with the University Career Center, campus and community service projects and regular networking opportunities for members.

The University of Kansas is a major comprehensive research and teaching university. University Relations is the central public relations office for KU's Lawrence campus.
