Moving out of your room
Updated on 7 July 2023
This year, there’s lots of different circumstances you might face when moving out of your room in University accommodation.
Donating unwanted items
The University Student Support Team and Sanctuary Students collect unwanted items from departing residents to donate to new students and or local charities.
If you have any items you wish to donate to the Big Giveaway (crockery, kitchen appliances, or stationery etc.) take them to the nearest donation point, or if the donation point is closed leave them in a box/bag in the kitchen clearly marked “BIG GIVEAWAY”
If you have unopened dried or tinned food you wish to donate to students in Residences/Dundee Foodbank, you can leave them on the kitchen countertop and mark "FOR DONATION".
If you cannot take your duvet home, you can leave this on your bed with a note clearly making “FOR DONATION”. Please dispose of any unwanted pillows (as these can’t be donated) and donate any unwanted bedding to the textile recycling bin at your site.
