We would like to thank all our undergraduate students moving out of halls of residence who took the time to donate their unwanted items to our annual reuse collection scheme!
This weekend our student-staff free shop assistants successfully completed the mammoth task of sorting through all the donations. They had a lot of washing up to do, as in total we collected 179 crates of donated items! Big thank you for all their hard work over the five days of the sort.
Donated items such as pots and pans, plates, cups, and kitchen utensils will all go into our Free Shop which is held during Freshers’ Week, where new students starting at the University will be able to pick up items for free!
The project is a collaboration between the Students’ Union and Sussex Estates and Facilities and supported by the Sussex Fund, thanks to generous donations from alumni and friends.
The project aims to increase students’ awareness of the benefits of recycling and to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill each year. It also helps our new students reduce their move in costs, provides an employment opportunity for our students, and helps us support and build links with other organisations that share our values.
The Freshers’ Free Shop will be open in Falmer House from the 10th – 12th September.

Each month your full-time officers get together to look at what comments you have submitted to the Loop over the past month. These are categorised into what is going well, what is going less well, and ideas for improvement. This feedback is acted upon: specific comments are sent to the University to inform their service and to take action if necessary.
