  • Changing rooms will be available
  • Bring a bag or backpack to carry your selected items

About the Items

  • Gently-used clothing items have been donated by UW staff, alumni, and employer partners
  • We cannot guarantee that clothing has been washed or dry-cleaned prior to donation, or that small imperfections don’t exist
  • The C&IC has intentionally procured a variety of items in a wide range of sizes and styles (while supplies last)
  • Items include: Blazers, sweaters, blouses, shirts, dress pants, dresses, skirts, ties, belts, shoes, bags, and more
