University of Richmond Office Supply Exchange- UROSE

The Office for Sustainability is pleased to host the University of Richmond Office Supply Exchange Program (UROSE). Run primarily by students, UROSE allows offices to donate surplus supplies in exchange for free supplies donated by other offices. With this popular exchange program, offices reduce University waste while saving money and space. Hours are announced through Spiderbytes. On these dates, Puryear 101A will be open for browsing, shopping, and donation drops. The inventory is always changing, so please remember to check the supply exchange before placing orders for new supplies. 

UROSE saves University staff an average of $160 per week and over $1000 has been saved over the course of the Fall 2016 semester.

Spring 2017 Hours: Mondays 1:30-2:30 p.m.

  4. Contact Information Services for assistance with electronic waste, we regret that the supply exchange will no longer accept electronics, computer peripherals, or other electronics.

Opt Out of Paper Campus Mailings

Staff and faculty: While you're completing open enrollment in BannerWeb this year, consider opting out of paper. Doing so will remove your name from all on-campus mailing lists. This includes items addressed specifically to you, with the exception of essential communications regarding your employment, benefits, safety, and other institutional priorities. By choosing to not receive optional printed materials in campus mail, you’ll be reducing the University's use of paper and energy resources needed to create the mailings.
