PeriodBox Overview

⇒ Period Box is a student-led, student-funded initiative organized by USG’s Sexual Health Subcommittee and sponsored by the student organization Period @ UConn. Period Box aims to provide sustainable and high-quality menstrual projects directly to students and relieve period poverty on campus. 

⇒ This initiative was launched in 2020 when students were less frequently in public bathrooms due to COVID-19 protocols, and unable to get the 25¢ menstrual products in restrooms. 

⇒ Students who sign up for a box will receive approximately a six month supply of products, including a variety of pads and tampons, heating pads, menstrual cups, and period underwear.  All products available for Period Boxes are non-toxic, cruelty-free, and vegan.

⇒ The PeriodBox application is on a first come, first serve basis.
