Warrior Wardrobe

The Warrior Wardrobe will be reopening in a new location fall 2021. 

The Warrior Wardrobe is designed to provide gently used garments to any enrolled student free of charge. Our goal is to help relieve the stress of affording clothing, and allow scholars to focus more energy creating positive impressions and interactions during class or at an interview.

This would not be possible without the efforts of the Dean of Students Office, Career Services and the Division of Enrollment Management. We are also grateful for the support of the Wayne State University Bookstore.

Who can use the Warrior Wardrobe and what do I need to bring with me?

We are available to any enrolled student, and you will need to show your OneCard for access.

What kind of clothing does the Warrior Wardrobe have?

Our Warrior Wardrobe has a wide variety of clothing styles and sizes. Each branch has different items:

  • Casual Closet – Casual attire for class, like jeans, khakis, sweaters, long and short sleeve shirts
  • Career Cube – Business attire for interviews, like suits, dress pants, button down shirts, dresses and blouses

How much does Warrior Wardrobe clothing cost?

Nothing! Warrior Wardrobe clothing is absolutely free for enrolled students.

When do I have to return the clothing?

Never! After you receive clothing from Warrior Wardrobe, it is yours to keep. Warrior Wardrobe does hope that students will pay-it-forward and become future Warrior Wardrobe donors, but there is no requirement to return any clothing from either Warrior Wardrobe location.

How many times can I visit the Warrior Wardrobe? How many items can I take each time?

There is no limit on the number of visits or items for students in either the Career Cube or the Casual Closet. 

How can I donate?

Warrior Wardrobe operates with the support of generous donors and donations, which have a direct impact on students reaching their educational and professional goals.​ Donations can be dropped off at the Welcome Center or Career Services. Please make sure they are freshly laundered or dry cleaned.
