Suit-A-Bull is a free professional clothing rental service for USF students.
Students can borrow attire for career fairs, interviews, and workplace meetings/events when professional clothing is required.
Suit-A-Bull rents suits, jackets, pants, dress shirts, blouses, skirts, dresses, ties, and belts. We do not rent shoes or other clothing types.
Suit-A-Bull is located in the Student Services Building in room SVC 2060, just down the hall from Career Services.
Students wishing to rent apparel should bring their valid USF Student ID Card with them.

Each garment rented is cleaned after each use and then returned to inventory for other students to rent. Dry cleaning services for all garments are generously provided at cost by Elite Cleaners of Temple Terrace.
Before moving to its current location, Suit-A-Bull operated out of a variety of mobile locations. In the summer of 2015, the service moved into a brand-new, permanent facility just down the hall from Career Services. Since then, Suit-A-Bull has been permanently located on the second floor of the Student Services Building (SVC-2060). In its first full year of operation within this space, Suit-A-Bull provided assistance to more than 700 students.
Local professionals, faculty, and staff have generously donated a closet full of apparel and accessories in order to provide students with the proper attire for career fairs and job interviews. In the fall of 2015, the Suit-A-Bull USF Deans and Vice Presidents Challenge was held. The Challenge allowed academic and administrative units of the university to compete against one another by awarding points for clothing items collected during the challenge period. The winner of this challenge was the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences.
In the summer of 2016, the Suit-A-Bull Corporate Challenge was held and Enterprise Holdings was the winner of the challenge event! Also participating were Citi (finishing in second place) and Northwestern Mutual (finishing in third place).
Thank you for considering Suit-A-Bull for your donation! The clothing that we are able to provide to students comes from donations from alumni, current and retired members of USF faculty and staff, and the local community. Students are able to rent the attire for absolutely no cost to them - we even handle the dry-cleaning.
