Loan Closet

Our Loan Closet is a great success! It is now located in the Paul M. Bass Administrative and Clinical Center. International researchers – and their families  working and/or studying at UT Southwestern Medical Center  for 12 to 24 months may borrow items to help them set up housekeeping. 

Everyone is so grateful for the helping hand that the Loan Closet gives them. It makes them feel that the Medical School community really cares about them.

Let's show that we care by donating small appliances and other gently used household items such as:

  • Bicycles
  • Children's toys
  • Coffee makers
  • Clock radios
  • Cribs and car seats (must meet current standards)
  • Floor and table lamps
  • Folding chairs and tables
  • Pots and pans
  • Rice cookers
  • Teakettles
  • Toasters
  • Vacuums
  • Wall clocks

You may donate cash along with your dues. For more information, please email Susan Froehlich, Johanna Perrillo, or Nyla Krippner at
