At clothing swaps, KSU students and staff can bring gently worn items and exchange them for new-to-you wardrobe additions. Our university-wide clothing swaps provide an inclusive space where students can “shop” sustainably for free. In addition to “shopping”, students can benefit from workshops held at swaps, such as making a tote bag out of an old t-shirt and learning how to mend clothes.
Check out our social media to stay updated on swap dates!
How do OwlSwap's clothing swaps work?
Bring up to 10 clean, gently worn* items from your wardrobe – things you think others might be interested in wearing, but you are willing to part with. For every item, you bring, you will receive a ticket: 1 ticket = 1 new-to-you item. You use your tickets to go “shopping” for new-to-you wardrobe additions. If you don’t use all your tickets, keep them for the next swap or donate tickets for a student in need. If you wish to drop off donations, bring more than the swap limit, or bring items that are damaged, OwlSwap has a collection bin at all events for textile donation and recycling.
*OwlSwap does not accept stained, damaged, or dirty items for swap tickets. We will have a recycling bin on-site for these items.
