At the end of every school year, students in dorms leave behind a significant number of personal belongings and discarded items in residence halls, and we encourage all students to make a difference by donating items they no longer need or don’t want to take home before moving out.

We will be accepting the following donations: 

  • Clothing
  • Towels, sheets, and blankets
  • Small, hard-surface furniture items, including chairs, desks, and nightstands
  • Small, working appliances, including lamps, mini fridges, and microwaves

Please only donate items that are in good condition. As a rule of thumb, if an item is too worn or too broken to use, do not donate it. 

Each donation bin will be labeled. Please take a moment to sort through your items so we can donate them to the correct locations. 

Additionally, Sodexo is coordinating food pantry donations! 

  • To participate, pick up a brown bag from Randall Dining Commons, fill it with unopened, unexpired, non-perishable food items you wish to donate, and bring it back to Randall to drop off and be entered in a raffle to win prizes.
  • There will also be donation bins for unopened, unexpired, non-perishable food items at Panther Village and Chapman Grand.

Alongside the donation bins, we will have bins to collect e-waste in each residence hall. 

  • Items accepted include batteries, flashlights, calculators, clocks, laptops, monitors, printers, keyboards, and mice.

Please note the following donation locations: 

  • Chapman Grand Pool Area
  • Panther Village Clubhouse
  • Henley Lobby
  • Pralle Lobby
  • Glass Center Tower Lobby for furniture and appliance donations; North Tower Courtyard for all other donations
  • Morlan Lounge
  • Davis Community Center
  • Sandhu Lobby
  • The K Basement


We wish all students a smooth move out, and please email for any questions regarding donations during move-out.
