Toiletry Pantry

The Associated Students (AS) Toiletry Pantry is a new pilot project (launched in September 2018). It is conveniently set up as a one-stop “take-as-you-need” service in providing basic toiletry essentials to students in need. The toiletry pantry is currently located in the AS Office in the Otter Student Union, Room 304.

Through the pantry, AS has consistently provided over 500 basic toiletry items to students monthly.  In addition to smaller items, we have also introduced full-sized products.

Toiletry Pantry Items:

The items provided in the Toiletry Pantry bins include, but are not limited to: menstrual products, hair care products, soap, lotion, dental hygiene products, shaving cream, toilet paper and more. We acquire these products through donations from local companies, CSUMB faculty and staff, and AS also subsidizes the purchase of necessary products to stock the bins.
