SuiTUp Professional Attire Closet

Make an impactful first impression at your next interview, job fair or networking event with professional attire.

Students dressed professionally at Career Fair

The SuiTUp Professional Attire Closet is available to all students in need of clothing for professional purposes — interviews, job fairs, networking events, etc. The closet contains suits, jackets, shirts, pants, skirts, dresses, ties and other accessories. There are gently-used items available that students can keep, as well as newly-purchased items available to borrow for up to 10 days.

How Do I Access SuiTUp?

Schedule a time to “shop” the closet by making an appointment on Handshake

Note: If you anticipate interest in “borrow” items (those that will need to be returned), you should schedule your appointment for no sooner than 5 days before the event you’ll be wearing the borrowed clothing. “Borrow” items will need to be returned within 5 days following the identified event. There are no time limitations for “keep” items that do not need to be returned.

Schedule an Appointment

SuiTUp Professional Attire Closet

Schedule a time to “shop” the closet by making an appointment on Handshake.

At the time of your appointment, check-in with the Career Center’s front desk (UU225). You will exchange your TU ID for the keys to the “KEEP” and “BORROW” rooms and will be directed the SuiTUp space.

Feel free to try on items of interest. For privacy, you can indicate if a room is “In Use” or “Vacant” and the door will be locked from the outside once closed. Please visit each room separately and keep item(s) in the appropriate (“KEEP” or “BORROW”) room. Rehang/return items to original hangers and racks when finished.

When done, check out with the Career Center’s front desk (even if you aren’t borrowing/keeping any items). Return keys and receive your ID back. If you will be taking items, the front desk will record what you borrowed and/or kept. 

For “keep” items, nothing further will be required (other than enjoying your new professional attire!).

For “borrow” items, you will need to fill out and sign the borrower’s agreement and return your item(s) to the Career Center by the due date which will be 5 days after the event for which  you are borrowing the clothing.
