Food pantry, clothing closet graphicThe student diversity initiatives (SDI) staff would like students to know about the clothing closet and food and supply pantry that are open at the Diversity House, located at 605 W. 11th St.

“Commuter’s Commodities” is a food and supply pantry to help alleviate the financial burden of obtaining food, small household goods, cleaning supplies and hygiene products. The SDI staff is committed to assuring that students have everything they need to succeed in their studies. The pantry is available to all S&T students in need. To use the pantry, students will need to complete a first-time user questionnaire online and schedule an appointment with a specialist.

The “Closets are for Clothes” closet provides free clothing for trans and gender-transitioning students, allowing them access to gently used or new gender-affirming clothing, shoes and accessories. The purpose of this service is to alleviate the financial burden of transitioning or coming out. While members of the transgender, non-binary and gender nonconforming community are given priority access to this resource, all S&T students who have a need for this service may use it accordingly. Students who are interested in using the closet can schedule a private appointment or stop by and take a look.
