University of Thriftsburgh


Pitt’s student-run on-campus thrift store, the University of Thriftsburgh is a working model of sustainability that encourages students to think about how to reuse and recycle in a whole new light!

Buying secondhand clothing reduces textile waste, cuts carbon, and promotes a culture of reuse.

Thriftsburgh has regular hours in the O’Hara Student Center, online sales, and holds an annual Fall Reuse Rummage Sale for clothing and household goods as students return to campus.
