Wildcat Wardrobe

The Wildcat Wardrobe accepts nearly new, contemporary professional attire in all sizes for men and women. All career appropriate clothing donations MUST be laundered/dry-cleaned and ready to wear on hangers only. No bags or boxes please. Shoes and jewelry can be put in bins. No donations should be in need of repair and no clothing items that haven’t been purchased in the last 5 years. Due to limited space in the Wardrobe, we want to ensure that we are providing college students with contemporary clothing in their pursuits for success. Focusing on these essential items will allow our team to maintain safety while continuing to meet our students changing needs.

Men's Clothing:

  Navy, gray, and black suits- sizes 32-42

A Letter from our President

Student and Academic Life Office of Student Organizations and Activites

Hello Wildcats,

Thank you for visiting our website and showing an interest in Student Government. Student Government’s mission is to serve all students. With that being said, we care about you, and your story matters to us. As your elected representatives from across campus, we strive to engage with students as much as possible in order to ensure the feedback we are providing to administrators is accurate and matches the pulse of campus.

Additionally, feel free to explore our many services and programs and utilize them during your time as a student. From Wildcab to legal services to Wildcat Wardrobe, our services address various aspects of the student experience, but they are sure to make life just a little bit easier.

Finally, get involved! We have a great team of passionate leaders, but we can always benefit from new perspectives. Run to be a senator or executive member in our general election in the spring, apply to be a director or coordinator, or just stay in touch and talk to us about what you are passionate or concerned about!

With any additionally questions or concerns feel free to contact us by phone (859-257-3191), by email (SGA.President@uky.edu) or stopping by our office (Gatton Student Center Room A267).

Go Cats,
