The clothes closet is a place where students can come in and create professional interview looks as well as casual work day attire. With the help of the interns/stylist, students will feel confident in what they pick from the closet. Thanks to the donations we receive, we are able to help students who can’t or don’t have time to purchase professional attire

The Clothes Closet is operated by the Cal Poly Pomona Career Center. The Career Clothes Closet provides students with the proper and professional clothing attire needed for an interview, a career fair, a conference, or for the first week of work. The attire is generously donated from faculty, staff, alumni, and employers to help students succeed!

Student Access to Clothes Closet

Students are welcome to come by the Career Center between 8 AM and 4:45 PM to select the professional attire! No appointment is necessary. Clothing supplies are based upon donations and will be available to students as long as supplies are continually received.

The Clothes Closet Open House will be held on 4-19-18, located outside of the Career Center from 10am to 3pm.


We accept professional attire for men and women in order to maintain stock in the Clothes Closet. We ask the professional clothing donations be in ready to wear condition with no stains, odors, tears, or missing buttons, when brought to the Career Center. Items that may be donated include matching suit-jacket, blazers, sport coats, collared shirts, long sleeve dress shirts, polo shirts, knee-length or longer dresses, skirts.  Long or short sleeve blouses, suit jackets, slacks.  Dress shoes, ties, belts, jewelry and other accessories such as scarves, belts and purses. Perhaps your company or organization could conduct a clothing drive and collect items for our Career Clothes Closet! All donations can be directed to the Career Center by contacting us at 909-869-2342 or


Look Book

Every semester the Clothes Closet Crew puts together an inspirational Look book which showcases fellow Cal Poly Students dressed in professional interview and first day of work attire. Each of them tell a meaningful story based upon the creative ideas set forth. The looks for each model are all found in The Clothes Closet.  Included are student testimonials who candidly share how much of an impact the Closet has had in their professional endeavors. We hope you enjoy viewing each of them and are inspired by their unique point of view.
