Joe's Closet

Joe's Closet is a free resource for students looking for professional outfits for job interviews or headshot sessions. Donated items are available for free to U of I students.

How it Works

Joe's Closet is open Sept. 27-28, 2021 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the ASUI Student Lounge in the Idaho Student Union Building. Students who are in need of professional clothes may come and take what items they need for their interview, headshots or the Career Fair. The clothes that students select are theirs to keep.  

Please limit your selection to two outfits maximum so others can access the items they need.
