$125,000 in Savings for SCSU!
In the last 4 years, The SCSU Swap Shop has saved more than $125,000 for university offices and departments. The Swap Shop is an office supplies exchange located at the Office of Sustainability in Facilities Operations, 615 Fitch Street, Hamden, CT. Faculty and staff are welcome to "shop" (for free) for office supplies in new or good condition. If your department has items you no longer need or will not use, donate them to us! You may bring donations over yourself or put in a work order request for pickup. Before you order from Staples, check the swap shop!

Monthly Swap Shop Open House
Need envelopes? Ink running low? Open house dates and times are sent out in a monthly campus email.  If you cannot attend during our monthly open house, send us an email to set up a convenient time to visit.
