Career Clothes Closet

Career Clothes Closet Distribution Guidelines

At the Mays Center, we want all students to be successful regardless of their financial circumstances.  To assist our Jaguars, the Career Clothes Closet is available to provide professional clothing to students needing proper business attire. The closet is located in the Science & Technology Building in Suite 111. Hours are Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. 

  • Only active Texas A&M University-San Antonio (A&M-SA) students may obtain clothing items from the Career Clothes Closet. Both walk-in and appointments are acceptable when utilizing the clothes closet. In addition provide complete contact information, their major, their expected graduation date, and reason of use of the clothing items.   
  • Items are available for distribution for the following reasons:
    • job interviews
    • career fairs and other events sponsored by the Mays Center at which professional dress is expected
    • graduate school interviews.

Clothing items are not available for functions such as but not limited to: classroom presentations, organizational meetings, weddings, funerals, or any personal social function.

  • Each student is entitled to one (1) outfit while they are a student at A&M-SA. An outfit includes the following
    • Suit or equivalent (pants and jacket)
    • Shirt/top
    • Tie
    • Belt
  • If a student wants another suit, they may bring a suit as part of the Trade-Up Program. In this case, the student will bring a suit (pants and jacket) and exchange for another suit. The suit must be in an acceptable condition including no stains and cleaned.
  • The clothes closet is open year round when classes are in session, which includes fall, spring, and summers semesters.
  • The closet may be closed during major events such as career fairs, commencement, etc.
  • The Mays Center makes an attempt to pre-screen clothing but all clothing is accepted on an "as is" basis.
  • The student is responsible for trying on clothes and determining proper fit and suitability before accepting the clothes. All clothes must be tried on in the closet or nearby restroom.
  • The clothing supply relies upon donations; therefore, the Mays Center makes no guarantee to have the size or type of clothing available that the student is requesting.
  • If the student does not find clothing at the time, he or she is welcome to come back again to check out any new arrivals which may have been donated throughout the year.
  • A student must come in to use the closet; staff will not check for availability of items by phone or email. A student may place item(s) on hold until the end of the business day (5:00pm). If the clothing is not retrieved by that time, it will be placed back in the closet.   
  • A student must leave the closet in the same condition as he or she found it. The student is responsible for hanging up all clothes that he or she tried on and returning them to the correct spot. 
  • Students are responsible for reading and following the guidelines. The Mays Center reserves the right to prohibit a student from future use of the closet if any guideline is not followed.
