Husky Exchange is Back!

Moving out but don’t have room for everything? Give it a new home with Husky Exchange!

Throughout Final Exam Week and Move-Out Weekend, MTU’s Office of Sustainability and Resilience is hosting its annual Husky Exchange program where students donate unwanted items that will then be redistributed to next year’s residents. As long as your items are clean and useful, look for the Husky Exchange logo and leave them at any residence hall drop-off locations.

Welcomed Items: Pool Noodles, clothing, food, houseware, furniture, broomball sticks, small appliances, etc.

Rule of Thumb: If it’s clean and useful, leave it with Husky Exchange!
