At move out, we facilitate the opportunity for students to donate items. Donating your gently used housewares and non-perishable food helps us as a community from adding unnecessarily to landfills.

Through the UTSC FreeStore, we collect houseware items that new students can reuse next year. Additionally, we collect clothing, linens, and non-perishable food to donate to community partners. This will also help you reduce the amount of packing you have to do for move out! 

Please bring any donations to the Residence Centre by your move out time.
