Campus ReStore

The Office of Campus Sustainability is working to reduce the amount of solid waste generated on campus while conserving natural resources through the practice of "re-use" at BGSU!  

Campus ReStore

A place, operated by Campus Sustainability that offers a wide variety of gently-used, donated items to BGSU students, faculty, & staff!

The Campus ReStore is located in the McDonald Hall Annex. Specifically, the eastern section of the McDonald residence hall. ReStore customers should enter through the sliding doors off of College Avenue.


Spring 2024 Event Dates:

January 24th from 12-2 PM
February 28th from 12-2 PM & 4-6 PM
March 27th from 12-2 PM & 4-6 PM
There will be no cover charge for this event. We will be checking BGSU ID's at the door.

ReStore Policy 

  • You are limited to ONE reasonable size bag of items only.
  • NO creating piles of stuff.
  • NO shopping for multiple people.
  • Once you leave, NO re-entry.
  • Failure to follow Restore policy will result in removal from store.

2023 marked BGSU’s Office of Campus Sustainability’s 21st annual "When You Move Out, Don’t Throw It Out" (WYMO) program, a campus-wide reuse and waste-reduction initiative! WYMO collects still-usable, but unwanted, items from students as they're moving out from the residence halls to prevent these items from getting sent to a landfill.

These items are then offered to local nonprofits as well as given back to students at ReStore events throughout the year.
