donate your household items

Sharing is Caring - donate your household items to the next generation of Tilburg University students!

Date: Time: 12:00 Location: Academia Building

Are you leaving Tilburg soon, or simply having an end of year clear-out of your accommodation? Donate your unwanted household items to the new generation of international students in Tilburg!

The aim of Sharing is Caring is to break the cycle of perfectly good household items ending up in the trash when students leave Tilburg. Instead, the items will be collected and offered for free to new international students who arrive in Tilburg during the Registration Day on January 19, 2024.

Items we are able to accept:

  • Kitchen items (pans, plates, glasses, cutlery, utensils, etc.)
  • Homeware items (ornaments, decorations, photo frames, posters)
  • Clothing
  • Books and stationery
  • Unopened and non-perishable food products

All donations must be clean and in good condition!

Items we unfortunately cannot accept:

  • Very large items like furniture and bikes
  • Broken or dirty items
  • Bedding items (e.g. mattresses, pillows, pillow cases, duvets, duvet covers)
  • Opened food products and food products that will expire before January 19, 2024
  • Medicines, pills and cosmetic products

Please bring along your donations to the drop-off moments on Monday December 18 from 13:00 to 16:00 in Room AZ207, and on Thursday 11 January from 12:00 to 15:00 in Room AZ102. If you can't make it on those days, you can also bring donations to the Student Desk during the Study Abroad & Exchange Office Hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-12:00.
