Second Hand Furniture

Our aim in the Estates Department is to reuse items wherever possible.

Before buying new furniture please consider our new reuse scheme called , this is an online facility where you can view and request surplus new or nearly new furniture available across campus*

Two good reasons for this is to reduce our carbon footprint and second it is free!

Please sign up for a Warp-it account today and start your search for the item/s you need. You can also list items you do not require for other members of staff to take off your hands. So think 'green' before ordering new. We may not always have what you need but it is worth giving us a try before you spend any money.

If you know of any departments skipping old furniture or items please let us know because there are a number of charities and schools that we work with who would appreciate any items. For more general information on recycling please visit the Waste and Recycling section on the main menu.

If, for whatever reason, a company is not available to undertake the work, or you are uncertain about the procedures, please contact


*Items remain the property of the University, must remain on site, and are not for private use.
