Care Closet

At times, college students may encounter barriers to getting access to necessities. Barriers could be financial, transportation, or societal, among other reasons. The Care Closet aims to reduce those barriers and provide students access to essential hygiene products on campus. Students can take the products they need completely free and without any questions asked. There are two Care Closet locations on campus!

Rec Center

This Care Closet is located in the Rec Center in Andorfer Commons, next to the vending machines. This Care Closet is accessible during Rec Center hours.

Student Affairs

This Care Closet is located in the Student Affairs suite in Andorfer Commons in room 156 outside of Jozy Garrison’s and Res Life’s office. This Closet is accessible Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00 when offices are open.

Care Closet’s Impact

“I think it’s awesome tech has this, it is super nice because when I run out and can’t afford to go to the store and buy it I can come get it from there and not be embarrassed or scared because it’s put in a good spot that has low traffic.”

“I absolutely love it, it makes me feel supported, and it always brightens my day especially when i cant afford more pricey items. thank you for doing this it means so much.”
