Professional Clothing Closet

UC MERCED PROFESSIONAL CLOTHING CLOSET

The professional clothing closet is a free suit rental service for UC Merced students. Our professional closet has items including suits, jackets, pants, and skirts. The closet is located in the Kolligian Library in Room 184, just down from the Campus Store.

Students can borrow attire for interviews or other occasions where professional clothing is required. Students may borrow the clothing for up to five business days, or for longer periods of time if needed.

Students wishing to rent apparel should bring a valid CatCard with them.
