Out with the old in with the new; give away your clothes in return for new ones.

Once a month the University holds clothes swap events to encourage the recycling of unwanted clothes and themed items.

The swap rules are:

  • Bring three items or more of clean decent quality garments.
  • Themed items must be in good working order.
  • If you don’t have anything to swap then a £3.00 donation will be taken for a nominated charity.
  • All garments of clothing including footwear are allowed but NO Underwear please.
  • There are no rules as to how many items you take, we just ask that everyone plays nicely! Any remaining items are donated to Oxfam on Oxford Road.
