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.
HOURS OF OPERATION
Please return all rental wardrobe to the front desk at the Center for Career & Professional Advancement office, Student Services Building (SSB), Suite 230. You can return your suit from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday.
GARMENT CLEANING POLICY
Each garment rented is dry-cleaned after each use and then returned to inventory for other students to rent.
The Clothing Closet is operated by the Office of Leadership, Service and Career. Suits were provided at cost by the JCPenney store at the Merced Mall. Generous financial support provided by: The UC Merced Alumni Association, University Friends Circle, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and many individual donations.
Donations of actual clothing are not currently being accepted. Please contact the Office of Leadership, Service and Career if you would like to make a financial contribution to the Professional Clothing Closet or visit https://giving.ucmerced.edu (search UC Merced Clothing Closet)
