Ben’s Attic Enhancements

The Ben’s Attic website, developed by Purchasing Services for the exchange and purchase of surplus University-owned property, will get a software update and a number of user enhancements thanks to a Spring 2013 Green Fund grant. The enhancements have been proposed in response to valuable feedback that has been gathered through surveys and interviews with users. The new features are designed to make Ben’s Attic more effective and increase the number of items being repurposed, thereby sending fewer items to landfill.
