Career Closet

The Career Closet provides students with the opportunity to build their professional wardrobe for free through in-kind donations from the Campbell University community and its affiliates. A shopping day is offered each semester for students to shop for professional clothing. The Career Closet is also open for shopping throughout the year for students in need of professional clothing.

Interested in Donating to the Career Closet?

Career Services invites the Campbell University and surrounding community to donate new or gently used professional clothing to our Career Closet. We accept clothing Monday-Friday from 8:30am-5:00pm in the Student Services building. The donated items are provided to Campbell students free of charge.
