Campus Clothing Closet

What is the Campus Clothing Closet?

The Campus Clothing Closet is open for all currently enrolled Boise State University students to access good quality, sustainable and affirming clothing at no cost.

Finding clothing to fit a variety of body sizes, personal style and expression, weather conditions and more can be arduous and cost-prohibitive. The Campus Clothing Closet seeks to bridge that gap while also keeping gently used clothing out of the landfill.

About the Campus Clothing Closet


Schedule an appointment to visit the Closet and pick out what suits you. Appointments are generally 45 minutes long and available to all currently enrolled students. You may choose up to ten (10) items per semester. Students with special accommodations from the Dean of Students, the Gender Equity Center or the Campus Food Panty may exceed this limit.

Donate Items

We greatly appreciate the incredible support everybody has shown the Campus Clothing Closet. We’ve received a wealth of donations! Thank you to our community and everyone who has supported us through the Clothing closet’s launch. At this moment, donations in sizes XXS, XS, XXL or larger and masculine clothes are in high demand.

Donations are tax deductible and can be delivered to the Gender Equity Center located on the second floor of the Student Union Building, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday – Friday. Accommodations may be made by emailing or calling (208) 426-4259.
