The Bison Boutique

The Bison Boutique at Nichols College is a FREE career closet lending program established for current Nichols College students who need attire for their professional requirements.

About the Bison Boutique

The Bison Boutique is located in the Career and Professional Development Center in the Fels Student Center, suite 201. No appointments are necessary; walk-ins are welcome Monday – Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm. Reservations are good for three business days unless otherwise specified. We have over 300 items for students to rent. In the 2021-2022 Academic Year we had over 1,000 transactions! This is a FREE resource for students who need to reserve professional clothing for any obligation they may have. Students are not responsible for cleaning or ironing attire after use. We do not recommend that students attempt to wash or iron clothing after wear in order to avoid potential damages and shrinking. The Bison Boutique has access to dry cleaning services, and we are happy to take care of the cleaning process.
*Items are free of charge to borrow, provided items are returned on time and undamaged.
