Care and Resources


Hail to Thrift

Created in the spring of 2014, Thriftsburgh is Pitt’s student-run on-campus thrift store serving students, staff, faculty, and the Pittsburgh community by re-purposing and selling second-hand clothing, shoes, and accessories. Buying secondhand clothing reduces textile waste, cuts carbon, and promotes a culture of reuse. All items sold in the store are $10 or less.

Thriftsburgh has regular store hours in the O’Hara Student Center and holds various events throughout the year. The Annual Reuse Rummage Sale is hosted each August to provide clothing, dorm, kitchen, and bathroom essentials to students returning to campus.

Donations and Store Credit

Donate any of your second-hand clothing, shoes, and accessories to Thriftsburgh to receive half back the amount in store credit! Donations may be dropped off during store hours or left in the donation bin outside the Thriftsburgh store.
