Get your Workwear Wardrobe

The Workwear Wardrobe initiative has been created with the University’s overall strategy of sustainability in mind and aims to help you build a workwear wardrobe in an affordable way ahead of interviews, assessment centres and gaining work experience.

Simply come along to any of the events listed to pick up the items you need free of charge!

You will be able to pick a limited number of items whether it be a new suit, a tie or a smart dress, to ensure we are able to support as many students as possible. And of course if you have items to donate we're happy to add those to the wardrobe too.

The pop-up wardrobe will be at these events:

  • Autumn Careers Fair - 12th October 2023
  • Internships and Placements Fair - 31st January 2024
  • Summer Careers Fair - 8th May 2024

Want to donate?

Donations have been received from employers we work with as well as the Warwick community.

Helping the environment
