Cougar Closet

Dress for success

Did you know there’s a place right here at Indiana University Kokomo that can help you look your best – for free? Whether you have a job interview coming up, a special event, or a networking opportunity, the Cougar Closet is here to help IUK students make a strong impression.

Opened in fall 2021 by the Women in Business and Student Marketing organizations, the Cougar Closet is located in the Main Building, Room 180, and operated by student volunteers during the school year. All items are free to students in need.

Donations are also accepted, to continue and promote sustainable clothing and textile practices.

The Cougar Closet is closed for the summer and will reopen this fall.
