Rent the Closet, Own the Interview

The Comet Closet was established in 2015 as a valuable resource to provide professional clothing at no charge to students preparing for interviews or other professional events. Our mission is to ensure students can walk into an interview feeling confident inside and out. Research has shown that first impressions are often made in under 10 seconds and can factor in heavily towards a hiring decision. Available attire includes dress pants, skirts and blazers. Items are available on a 14-day rental basis and must be dry-cleaned before return. The Closet is available to all enrolled students who are currently in good academic standing.

Contact us today and discover how you can donate, participate, or volunteer with the Comet Closet. Through your support, we can continue to make this service free to all students.

Appointments must be scheduled in advance. Students can check out an attire as often as they need, provided they are in good academic standing and have returned all previously borrowed items. Items can be kept for 14 days and must be professionally dry-cleaned prior to returning to Comet Closet (a dry-cleaning receipt should accompany all returned items). Items that are not returned will be charged to the student’s account.
