Free Stuff – MyUMBC Group

Similiar to the “Buy Nothing” Groups that are Popular

UMBC community members are in need of coats, hats, gloves and scarves as well as other items.  Since we don’t have a coat closet, please join this group and post any warm weather clothing that you want to give away on this group.  The items in your closet that aren’t being used would be greatly appreciated by our community.

About This Group


One person’s “stuff” is another person’s “treasure”.  If students, faculty or staff have items they own, that they no longer need (that were not purchased with state, federal or grant money), they can post those item(s) here.  Anyone who needs the item(s) posted should contact the poster and arrange a time to pick up on campus during daylight hours in a location where other people are present.

Anyone in need of anything can post an “In Search of”, “ISO”.  Anything that is legal, ethical, and doesn’t hurt anyone is fine to post as an ISO or as a “giveaway”.

Suggested items to give away or request are coffee makers and other small appliances, hats, coats, gloves, scarves, furniture, etc. 

Everything must be clean and in good working condition, not recalled or damaged.

IMPORTANT:  All items are free of charge.  No goods, services or money changes hands.  We have no storage space on campus for donated items, so all transactions are done on an individual basis.
