The Professional Clothing Closet

What we do

Clothing Closet Door Sign (1).pngProfessional business clothes can be expensive and out of price range for many individuals, especially students. In classic Redlands fashion, we want to help the Bulldog community. In response to this need, we have established a clothing closet on campus where students will be able to get business and professional clothing for free. It works a lot like a food pantry, but for clothes.

To supply the clothing closet, fellow students, alumni, and the community will be invited to donate new and gently used modern clothing, or donate financially to help stock the closet.

The Office of Career & Professional Development offers many free services on campus that help support students to build their career, and the Office of Alumni & Community Relations is excited to offer this resource for students in need to build their professional wardrobe. We hope that this clothing closet will build confidence for students when they go into important interviews, internships, or jobs.
