Our mission is to help students dress for success for upcoming interviews, presentations, career fairs, and other networking events.

About the Professional Wardrobe Studio (PWS)

We provide professional wardrobe items to students at no charge for upcoming interviews, career fairs, presentations, and networking events. Students can select up to five items per semester. We have blazers, suits, slacks, dress shirts, dresses, shoes and more.

During the summer the PWS is open by appointment only. Please email careerservices@umkc.edu to schedule your appointment.

Address: Spencer Chemistry Building, Room 426

Alumni who have graduated in the past 12 months can also visit the PWS. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please email Career Services.
