Welcome to the Reusable Office Supply Exchange (ROSE)

The Reusable Office Supply Exchange (ROSE) is an on-campus source for free office and school supplies available to the campus community in Warren House 53. 

  • HSU departments, local businesses, and students donate everything from binders to craft paper they no longer need, in hopes of making it available to others.
  • Through donation, ROSE negates the need to produce products that create a waste stream of their own.
  • On average, ROSE saves HSU students a collective $8,000 each semester, and saved over $20,000 in the Spring 2010 semester.
  • The ROSE Storehouse is open Monday through Friday, 8:00a to 5:00p.


For more information on where to recycle/reuse almost anything in Humboldt County visit humboldtrecycling.org.
