FAQ:

How do I qualify to use the Terrier Supply Closet?

The closet is open for all students who feel they need assistance. There is no screening process or application needed. Students can simply swipe their ID for entry.

How much can I take?

The college respects the judgement of the student to take what is needed. Take what you need and use what you take.

The hygiene products in the Terrier Supply Closet do not meet my needs. Can you help?

There will generally be at least one small-denomination gift card for a local pharmacy on the shelves with toiletries/hygiene products. Please take one of these cards if needed. The cards also may be used to purchase items such as aspirin or cold remedies.

Is clothing available in the Terrier Supply Closet?

In our first year of operation (2020), there is a small set of men’s coats and pants donated by the athletics office. We hope to expand these offerings in the future.

How can I support the Terrier Supply Closet?

The college welcomes donations of financial support and/or gift cards ($10-$25) for local pharmacies, grocery stores and restaurants. To give online, visit the Terrier Supply Closet form.

At this time, we ask that items of food and toiletries not be donated because of limited storage space.
