On-campus students donate lots of clothing and household items at the end of each school year.




University Housing’s Leave Green program connects these donations with charitable organizations in the community.

We invite your organization to apply to be this year’s recipient of items donated by more than 5,700 campus residents in May during Move-Out 2017.

Common Donations

  • Clothing
  • Ironing boards
  • Shower caddies
  • Electronics
  • Dishes
  • Miscellaneous household items

Multiple organizations may want to work together to collect the items. If so, the application must be submitted as a single application detailing how the organizations will work together.

The selected organization(s) is expected to pick up and store the items donated on a daily basis during the collection period, April 24 – May 15. Items deemed appropriate for reuse will be at the discretion of the recipient organization.

Donation boxes should be placed in the residential facilities April 24 and picked up on May 16. University Housing maintains more than 20 buildings.

Please submit the application by Feb. 17 to be considered.

The organization selected will be notified no later than March 10.

2017 Leave Green Application

Students donate thousands of items during the move-out process in May.

University Housing chooses a community organization each spring to collect these items.

The deadline to submit this form is Feb. 17.

  • Daily pick up must be provided if you are selected.

    Write a brief summary explaining how your organization would adequately collect, on a daily basis, the high volume of donated items from a minimum of 20 buildings across campus. Include in your summary specific times your organization would be on campus to pick up the donated items and the description of the receptacle that would be used for collection.

    University Housing will provide a loading dock pass to assist in collection.

  • What uniform and/or identifying clothing or name tags will staff wear when collecting the items?
