About the Terp Restore

The Terp to Terp Campus ReUse Store coordinated by the Department of Resident Life was created to respond to students’ essential needs while encouraging a culture of social responsibility and reducing waste generation.

The store collects and distributes unused or gently used small appliances, cooking/kitchen items, room accessories, and school supplies donated throughout the year by students, faculty, and staff.

There is no fee associated with the use of the store, all items are free for UMD students to have and any UMD student in need of living essential items can set up an appointment to shop.
