[Canceled] Open House and Furniture Drive

August 4, 2022 and August 9, 2022
7:30 am
Warehouse in WashU’s North Campus (700 Rosedale Ave.)

Update: Due to flooding in North Campus, these events have been postponed until further notice.

Join us for an open house to tour the new Circularity Center at WashU’s north campus. The Circularity Center is a WashU program with a mission to serve students, staff and faculty, as well as the broader community while keeping valuable items out of the landfill.

The Circularity Center is operating as a pilot, launched in May 2022 and funded through the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor for Administration. From April – September, the Circularity Center operates Share Our Stuff, a program that collects and processes materials donated from students moving out of on-campus and off-campus housing, and makes the materials available for reuse to other students moving into housing over the summer and fall. From October – April, the Circularity Center is available as a resource for offices, labs, and departments looking for lightly-use office supplies, equipment, electronics and furniture.

Support students by building our inventory!

We’ve already held numerous sales for students starting leases in June. Help us build up our inventory by bringing select household items during our furniture drive!
