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! 

Donation boxes will be delivered to each unit on April 11 and 12 to place items in. Do not take this box for moving. Donation boxes will be picked up between April 24-28.

Please wash all items prior to placing them in donation boxes that have been delivered to your unit. Donated items should be gently used and in reusable condition.
