Giving thousands of items a second life and keeping them out of a landfill ...for FREE!

There will NOT be a Free Store in 2020 due to COVID-19. 



This one day event aims to give away THOUSANDS of useful items to UMD students. The Free Store is open for any current UMD student to shop, whether you live on campus or off.

Typical items we carry are: BED RISERS!, microwaves, mirrors, rugs, fans, lamps, kitchen items, storage and organization units, XL Twin sheets & comforters, SHOWER CADDIES, brooms & dust pans...the list goes on!

No item will be held in advance, it is first come, first serve -- however each student is limited to X* items in order to serve as many people as possible. *Item limit is dependent on amount of donations and varies each year.
