First Impressions

First Impressions (previously EcoDepot) is a service that provides students with access to professional clothes for job interviews and workplaces.

Not only does it make fashion accessible to all students, but it’s also a very Earth-friendly way to “shop”! First Impressions returns this semester with the same great service, but with a brand new look and new space. First Impressions is a student clothing depot offering previously loved separates and accessories for men and women suitable for job interviews and the workplace – at no cost to our students! Staff onsite can assist with styling and outfit coordination.

Where can you find us?

In our newly renovated Student Centre Lower Level at Progress Campus.


Come and join us Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., be sure to check in often as we have new arrivals all the time!

How can students take advantage of the First Impressions?

First Impressions is open to all students who want to make a good ‘first impression’ at interviews or on the job, FREE of charge! Access to the First Impressions requires a valid student card (or timetable for CE students).
