THE NEXT OFFICE SUPPLY SWAP EVENT IS SCHEDULED FOR April 24, 2018 IN SU 104 from 11-1PM

What is the office supply swap?

Usually held twice a year, the Office Supply Swap is an opportunity for NKU Faculty and Staff to swap unused and gently used office supplies instead of buying new. This initiative not only helps to save valuable university resources, but also reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills.

how does it work?

1. Bring your unused and gently used office supplies to SU 104 (if you have lots to swap, ou can submit a Service Request to have your items moved for you)

2. Before entering the swap: sign in and have your items weighed at the sign-in table

3. "Shop" for as many supplies as you need

4. You're good to go!

Please remember that all supplies must remain at NKU and be used for NKU work purposes only!

what should i bring?
