A room full of winter clothes

The Division of Student Life is excited to once again offer the Carleton Winter Wardrobe. The Wardrobe provides Carleton students with gently used winter clothing and accessories free of charge. Minnesota winters can be extreme and we recognize that not all students are adequately prepared to be outside during the long winter months. The Wardrobe will focus on Carleton students with the greatest financial need, but is open to the entire student body.
