Panther Resource Closet


The Panther Resource Closet offically opened January 2018 at the W.A. Lettinga Campus. The PRC stocks unopened non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products, and new or gently used professional clothing that is in style, clean, and in good condition. The closet is designed to provide these resources free of charge to all enrolled students who might need them. It is located on the lower level of the academic building between the main elevator and Public Safety.

The Impact of the PRC

In just one year of being offically open, the PRC recieved an estimated $5,423 worth of donated items to keep the closet stocked. Over 1,959 hygiene products, 1,804 food items, & 406 clothing garmets were used by DU students during Winter 2018-Fall 2018 semesters. 


How Do I Use the PRC?

Current enrolled students may access the closet whenever they are in need of such items. The PRC is open whenever the academic building is open. All students must fill out the visitor log indicating what items they took (this is anonymous) when they visit the closet. If you would like to request a specific item, please fill out the request form at the bottom of this page. 

Can I Donate to the PRC?

The PRC is run strickly on donations from inviduals, department drives, and community groups. If your department would like to do a drive, please contact the volunteer center at All donations of non-persihable food or hygiene items must be dropped off at the Center for Campus Life during normal business hours. Please be aware that the PRC is currently NOT accepting professional clothing due to excess stock. Check out the donation list found at the bottom of this page for ideas of items in need!
