What is Warp-it?
Warp-it is an easy-to-use online network which provides a platform for UCL staff to redistribute surplus resources legally and conveniently, both within the organisation, and with other organisations locally and nationally.
Warp-it can be used for any surplus reusable items (as long as they are for university use, not personal use) – most commonly furniture, stationery, electrical items, or educational resources are listed. But anything with some value can be listed.
1 chair or 100 desks - Whatever you have, Warp-it will help find it a new home!

Why ?
Warp-it helps the university to:

  • Save money – by reducing the need to buy new items.
  • Reduce waste – by redirecting items from landfill.
  • Cut carbon – by reducing associated emissions from consumption (buying and disposing) of items.

It’s a no brainer.

At UCL we are embracing circular economy principles; keeping resources in use for as long as possible, extracting the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recovering and regenerating products and materials at the end of the product’s life. This is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose). UCL will follow the principles of a circular economy from large tenders right down to individual purchases. Our circular economy perspective fully supports Warp-it.
If you have an item you no longer require, please advertise it on Warp-it. Or, if you are looking for an item, please check Warp-it before you buy new!
