Furniture Items

  • All unwanted furniture is donated to organizations in the community whenever possible
  • HPU has also implemented an online program called "HPU Swap Meet." HPU Swap Meet allows employees to post pictures online of furniture or equipment items that they no longer need, and allows other employees to search for items that they could use.
  • This is an efficient way to reuse HPU's resources within the university before purchasing new items.
