The Cantú Clothing Closet

The Cantú Clothing Closet is a resource for queer and trans students at UCSC to access clothing and accessories, including shoes, bags, hats, and jewelry, free of cost. The intention of the Clothing Closet is to provide trans, gender non-conforming and queer students with the freedom to comfortably find clothing that reflects their gender expression without the discomfort of shopping in a traditional clothing store. 

Interested in donating? We are accepting limited donations at this time, as we have no extra storage space. Right now we are prioritizing the following types of items:

  • Larger sizes
  • Sweaters and jackets
  • Rain gear
  • Closed-toed shoes
  • Purses and backpacks

Please contact to schedule a drop-off date. 

Thank you for supporting us!
