ShareShop

Augsburg’s ShareShop is officially up and running! Made by students for students, the ShareShop is a place to get free household goods, clothing, sheet sets, etc. The ShareShop was built in an effort to help students save money, reduce consumption of material goods, and provide a space that fosters community and informal learning about sustainable practices.

The Free Table is located outside of the ShareShop. The items on the table and rack are available for students to take without needing to check them out. Please only donate items to the ShareShop during its open hours. DO NOT PLACE DONATED ITEMS ON THE FREE TABLE.

MoveOut! At the end of Fall and Spring semesters, we have our biannual MoveOut in partnership with Residence Life. This will be an opportunity for students moving out of the residence halls to donate working small appliances, furniture, fans, kitchenware, clothes, etc. to the ShareShop and save it from going into the dumpsters and city incinerator.
