Welcome to The Swap Shop!

Swap Shop LogoSwap Shop

The Swap Shop is where you can find University owned office supplies for free! The Swap Shop is intended for University personnel (faculty and staff) to exchange office supplies in new or good condition that are no longer needed amongst departments. The Office of Sustainability & Recycling Center stores all Swap Shop items. Our office is located in the Facilities Operations and Planning building at 615 Fitch Street, Hamden, CT 06515.

If your department has items to donate, you may bring them over yourself or put in a work order request for pickup. We hope to see you soon!

Swap Shop Open House:

Does your office need supplies? Is your ink running low? Come get some free supplies at our next open house. Open House dates and times are sent out in a monthly email. Feel free to stop by the Office of Sustainability to drop off donations or find the items you’re looking for. If we are not in the office please feel free to drop your items in the collection box outside the door.

Since August 2013 we have given away over $18,500 worth of supplies!

If you cannot attend the open house, please contact the Office of Sustainability so we can assist you at a more convenient time.
