Time for a spring clean?

If you’ve got unwanted items or equipment in your department, don’t chuck them: save money, resources and energy - list them on WARPit, UCL’s platform for giving, sharing and loaning.

Never used WARPit before?

If you’ve never used WARPit before, now is the perfect time to get started. It’s simple to use and is an easy way to share your unwanted items. Sign up here: www.warp-it.co.uk/ucl

If you’d like help or advice using WARPit, just get in touch with Paul Monk (p.monk@ucl.ac.uk).



*We’ll exercise our judgement when it comes to really small items (for the purposes of the competition, 100 paper clips won’t be counted as 100 items listed. If you’re unsure what your items will count as, just get in touch).
