Kent State Career Closet

Here to help Kent State students look & feel their best! The Career Closet provides donated items at no cost for all Kent State University students who need an appropriate outfit for an interview, career fair, or other professional event.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, all sites of the Kent State Career Closet will be inaccessible through 2020. We are also NOT accepting donations at this time.

The Kent State Career Closet started as an idea of a few female staff members looking for ways to give back and help students and has grown from that casual conversation to a multi-site organization, with the potential for events, pop-up shops, and more.

More information will be available in 2021.
