The Shop at SMU

The Shop at SMU - Blue Circle Logo

You cannot study, work, or perform if you are hungry, and we want to help!

The Shop is available to current SMU students in need.

Visit the Fondren Library Main Desk during library hours of operation to access. Help us spread the word!


How to Contribute

The Shop started from a generous donation and is being sustained by the SMU community. We are so appreciative of the ongoing support.

We accept donations of non-perishable food and basic essentials. Donations may be dropped off at the Fondren Library Main Desk or in the Office of the Dean of Students, located in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center, Suite 205.
