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 are interested in volunteering for the Spring 2022 Semester fill out this form. 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!

This year, during our move out:
- Goodwill collected a total of 67,120 lbs. in donations, 8, 089 lbs. more than last year.
- Feeding South Florida was also able to collect 283 pounds of packaged food, which helped provide nearly 236 meals.
“Thanks to the support of community partners like you, we are able to provide these meals to serve the more than 785,000 food insecure individuals in our community.” Feeding South Florida
