ReUse Initiatives


UThrift for students

UThrift is UM's free pop-up thrift swap! UThrift is located at the UC Canopy or Westbrook Walkway (outside Shalala) every Wednesday from 9:30am-2:30pm in addition to other campus events! Bring lightly-used items to donate (clothes, shoes, accessories, books, and anything else in good conditions) to receive free items in return.

Our mission is to divert perfectly good, pre-loved items from the waste-stream as much as possible and find them a loving home in our UM community! Instagram & Facebook: @um_uthrift. If you have any questions whatsoever, please email 


A big THANK YOU goes to all of our students for giving back to our community and making our operations greener every year!
