Move Out

Ready to move out? There are lots of options for selling, donating, and getting rid of the things you've accumulated. 

SELL, SWAP or FREECYCLE

Selling your stuff is a great way to give your items a second life.  Whether you want to sell it on Craigslist or post your stuff to swap or give away on social media…we encourage REUSE! 

DONATE from your RESIDENCE HALL or CAMPUS APARTMENT!

You can donate your stuff at move-out without ever leaving your residence hall or Apartment! UMD Housing and Residence Life provides maroon bins to collect donations of clothing, small appliances, dorm necessities, furniture & decor, and nonperishable food. Items will be sorted and delivered to the most appropriate organization. The majority of items will be kept for our FREE STORE, Champ's Cupboard, and Champ's Closet because we aim to give as much back to our UMD community as possible. Other items will be donated to Goodwill, Second Harvest Food Bank, or other nonprofits in the Duluth community.

DONATE from OFF CAMPUS!

There will be Goodwill Blue Bins in the entrances to the Bus Hub and Library to collect donations from people living off-campus. Goodwill accepts:

  • clothing for all seasons in good condition
  • glassware and dishware
  • kitchen utensils and small appliances
  • linens and blankets
  • rugs
  • curtains
  • collectibles & decor
  • shoes and boots
  • toys and games
  • sporting equipment
