VCU Free Store

The Office of Sustainability is opening a new Free Store, to serve as an inclusive, on-campus resource to address basic necessities of living for members of the VCU community.

The Free Store is an on-campus resource that promotes equitable access to everyday needs like school/art supplies, electronics, home goods and plenty more. VCU students, staff and faculty can donate items and can take items for free! Help us launch this effort by donating your unneeded goods today.

Donations can be accepted anytime at the RamBikes building at, 201 N Belvidere St (at the corner of Belvidere St and Grace St).

The Free Store is located at the RamBikes building and is now open! 

Help yourself and pay it forward!
