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

  • 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. HSU 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 HSU students a collective $8,000 each semester and has saved students over $11,000 in the Fall 2019 semester and has diverted approximately 1,528 pounds of waste from the landfill.
