The Swap Shop Has Moved!

Swap Shop Open House - December 6 & 7 from 10:00am to 1:00pm. The Office of Sustainability collects donated office supplies and makes these items available to staff and faculty for free. Our student interns and volunteers help manage this inventory to reduce campus waste, and to reduce emissions from deliveries and trips to retail locations. We don’t have everything, but we have a lot (especially toner)! Check out the shelves at our new location before your next purchase and please consider donating some items when you upgrade or move office locations. Our new location is located in TE08 room 106
