Find, give away, or loan office furniture, lab equipment and other resources with WarpIt

WarpIt is an online marketplace to help redistribute resources legally and conveniently within the University for free. It is designed to make it easy for staff to find others with spare items - reducing procurement spend. It also helps staff who are disposing of “stuff” to find new owners - saving on waste disposal costs.

Cancer Research UK - Cambridge Institute "We used WARPit for the first time following a recent major refit of one of our labs/office areas. We had no end of redundant office furniture to get rid of; as a result of us putting it on the WARPit site (which is very easy by the way) 100% of this furniture was reused throughout many different departments in the University. WARPit is an excellent idea." - Colin Weir, Facilities Team Leader at CRUK-CI

Other options for re-use

If you're looking to dispose of equipment which is in good condition, why not have a look at 'Unigreenscheme', the asset sale service?

Other ways WarpIt can help

Refurbishments - If you have a building clearance, decant, refurbishment or decommissioning project coming up, WarpIt can come in catalogue and add the assets to the University's Warp It system. If required, they can also then manage the redistribution of the surplus assets internally (if appropriate) and then externally on your behalf. 

Furniture - Many of the items going onto Warpit are furniture. Where these are in poor condition, Warpit can provide support in repairing and refurbish it for re-use.
