Donate to the Suit Up professional clothing drive

Suit Up is a professional clothing drive that serves UNT students who don’t have access to appropriate business attire for interviews and networking. 

You can help support our students by donating new or gently used professional clothing and accessories to help students make a great first impression in their upcoming interviews and professional interactions.

With your support, more than 500 students were served during the 2015 event and more than 820 in the Fall 2016 event. The program’s goal is to assist even more students this spring.

To contribute, take your donation to either of three locations:

  • Career Center in Chestnut Hall, Room 103,
  • Business Leadership Building, Room 136 
  • Discovery Park location, Room C111.

On-campus donation pick-ups can also be scheduled by calling 940-565-2105.

Suggested Items include:

  • Pant and skirt suits
  • Skirts or dresses
  • Dress shirts, blouses, and sweater sets
  • Accessories (ties, belts, professional jewelry)
  • Sport coats and men’s suits
  • Dress slacks/khaki pants
  • New or gently worn professional shoes

The Career Center will also accept donations of non-perishable food items and toiletries for the UNT Food Pantry. Items most needed include canned tuna, cereal, peanut butter, granola bars, oatmeal and personal hygiene items.

Students will be able to select their Professional Clothing on  April 4 from 12 p.m.-4 p.m. in the University Union, Room 314.
