As part of our efforts to ensure a safe, clean environment for our students, we have made small changes to the Suit Yourself experience. All garments are sanitized before they are made available to students, and all surfaces are cleaned regularly. To limit exposure, students will not be able to try on clothes at this time. Students may be required to wear gloves (provided by us) when visiting Suit Yourself. Facial coverings are required at all times.
If you notice we are missing certain sizes, seasonal pieces or categories of professional wear, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.

Support the Closet
If you would like to donate gently used clothing to the Suit Yourself Closet or host a donation drive with your organization, please email us at careers.vcu.edu. We can share information about what items we are currently accepting, and we have materials to support the donation drive for your organization.
The Suit Yourself Closet also accepts direct monetary donations. Gifts will be used to provide materials for maintaining the Suit Yourself Closet and obtaining new, difficult to stock clothing items for students. You can make a one-time donation, a recurring donation, and even tag your business or employer for a matching donation program (VCU/VCU Health Employees can make donations through payroll deduction).
