Clothing Swaps

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold our usual clothing swaps.  We are coming up with creative ways to still provide free clothes for students while considering social distancing guidelines.  We have started posting available clothing and supplies on Humboldt's CampusWall.

Welcome to the Reusable Office Supply Exchange (R.O.S.E)

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

  • R.O.S.E focuses on resource accessibility in addition to waste reduction. R.O.S.E is an on campus resource that is a storehouse for used school supplies. Cal Poly Humboldt departments, local businesses, and students donate these supplies which allows these resources to be made free to the wider campus community and thus easily accessible to other students.


  • R.O.S.E offers these donated items for free, giving vulnerable student populations an opportunity to acquire necessary school supplies without having to face financial repercussions.


  • Through donations, R.O.S.E negates the need to produce products that create a waste stream of their own.


  • Fun Fact: on average R.O.S.E saves Humboldt students a collective $8,000 each semester. During the Fall 2019 semester students were saved over $11,000 and diverted approximately 1,528 pounds of waste from the landfill.
