Unsure if your items are appropriate for donation?

All donation items must be cleaned appropriately and free of any holes or stains. Items with any damage, outdated/out of style, and without a clearly labeled size will not be accepted.

Please view the guidelines above for more information on determining whether your gently used items are appropriate for donation to the Student Business Closet.

Want to Sponsor a Rack?

We are always looking to expand our offerings to students by adding additional racks of clothing! By sponsoring a rack, your business gets on-campus marketing, and has the potential for meaningful connections to be formed with students that are using clothing from the rack. 

At the time, we are only looking for a few sponsors, and as the Closet continues to grow, we hope to add more sponsors in the future.

For more information about sponsoring a rack, please contact the Student Business Closet by emailing [email protected].
