About UT Outpost

UT Outpost is the free on-campus food pantry and career closet for all currently enrolled students at UT Austin. Emergencies and financial hardships can affect students in and outside of class. UT Outpost is here to support students with healthy food and gently used professional clothing.

Food insecurity makes it hard for students to stay in class and succeed. A 2020 survey found that 42 percent of UT Austin students experienced food insecurity. The UT Outpost food pantry provides nutritious food for students so that they can focus on their education. UT Outpost also helps students identify and combat food insecurity on campus.

The UT Outpost career closet offers every Longhorn access to professional clothes for job fairs, internships, and interviews. Students can choose their own outfits from the career closet, including shoes and accessories, that are theirs to keep.

Important Notice

For the safety of our students and staff, UT Outpost shopping is currently limited to contactless food pantry pickup and career closet appointment shopping. Visit Shopping UT Outpost for more information. For additional food support, please visit the Central Texas Food Bank and Feeding America.
