UTPB Career Closet
Career Closet is aiming to ease the financial burden of currently enrolled UTPB students. Students can obtain up to five new or gently used professional clothing items every semester. These garments can be utilized during interviews, career fairs, and networking events. The clothing has been donated by faculty, staff, alumni, and other professionals. The UTPB Career Closet is located on the 1st floor of the Mesa in Room 1154.
How to visit the UTPB Career Closet
- Plan ahead: As we are a donation-based service, all sizes, colors, and styles are subject to availability. We recommend planning ahead and visiting 5 days before your event.
- Measure yourself ahead of time: We do not measure or size students.
- Be respectful of the service: The purpose of the closet is not to provide last-minute items out of convenience. Please plan accordingly for career fairs, class presentations, or other social events occurring on-campus.
The Career Closet will NOT be open on the day of career fairs.
Our goal is to offer a range of sizes and styles, but please note that due to limited resources, we cannot assure the availability of all options. We recommend submitting the appointment request promptly since availability is determined on a first-come-first-serve basis.
No, as long as you are a currently enrolled student at UTPB the items are free of charge and do not need to be returned.
