About Spring Cleaning
UC Davis Student Housing's Spring Cleaning program takes place in the residence halls during the week before the halls close for the year, so students - as they prepare to move out - may identify clothing, electronics, and other items that they no longer need or want and turn them in so they will continue to be used by others.
During the Spring Quarter finals week, Student Housing will establish a collection center in each residence hall where residents may bring their reusable items. Most collection centers are set up in residence hall lounge areas.
More information about the event, including maps, can be found at http://www.housing.ucdavis.edu/sustainability/springcleaning.asp. Those interested in volunteer opportunities should contact the UC Davis Student Housing Sustainability Coordinator.
