Welcome to the University of Wyoming's office of International Students and Scholars (ISS). Our goal is to provide information of interest to international students and scholars, whether they are new, currently enrolled at UW, or alumni. ISS is part of the Division of Student Affairs in the Admissions Office and serves an international population of more than 750 international students, 100 scholars and more than 200 international dependents annually. Over 90 countries from around the world are represented at UW. Our programs and services are designed to meet the needs of entering international students, currently enrolled international students, visiting scholars, and international alumni. Many of our programs have been recognized for their attention to student/scholar needs, and we have a reputation for friendly and efficient customer service.

The Household Item Giveaway for International Students is coming!

The Household Item Giveaway is a long-standing tradition with the international community at UW and we hope for your continued support!  New international students at UW often cannot bring the household essentials for their kitchens, bedrooms, etc with them when they travel.  Through the generosity of our UW and Laramie communities, our students are often able to gather the items they need without having to purchase everything to start their new homes here in Laramie.
The Giveaway will be Saturday, August 30th in the grassy area just south of the Cheney International Center (near 11th and Ivinson).  Donations can be dropped off between 7:30am and 8:00 am.  The students will be allowed to take items beginning at approximately 8:00 am.  We ask that you stay and enjoy the company of our students during the event, and take any of your leftover items with you when the event is over (usually about 9:00am).  Unfortunately, we do not have any space to store items in advance.  If you have suggestions of where leftover items can be donated (preferably who can pick up the items on thr 30th from the location) please contact ISS.

Items requested (please bring only items on this list):

  • Dishes and other kitchenware, small appliances
  • Household décoir items, curtains, etc
  • Furniture – if you bring furniture, please plan to stay and help the students move it to their homes.  Most do not have vehicles or large enough vehicles to do this!
  • WINTER wear such as coats, sweatshirts, hats, scarves, gloves, boots – please do not bring other clothing or shoes
  • Bedding, blankets, sheets, towels, etc
  • Children’s items – toys, books, furniture, decor

We ask that all donated items be clean and as good as new.  If you could/would not use it in your own home, please refrain from donating it.  Also, broken items or items missing pieces will not be accepted.

If you have any questions, please contact ISS at 766-5193 or  Thank you in advance for your continued support of this wonderful event!
