Period Project at Saint Mary's College

The Period Project at Saint Mary's College aims to provide free menstrual products to all students and campus community members.  According to a 2021 study published by BMC Women's Health, one in ten college students cannot afford panty liners, pads, tampons, and other menstrual hygiene supplies.  Additionally, Indiana is one of 26 U.S. states that taxes tampons and pads.

Our goal is to provide free period products in every building on Saint Mary's campus during the 2022-2023 school year.  For a complete list of stocked bathrooms, click here.  Additionally, we have a substantial supply of products in the Mother Pauline Pantry on campus for students to access at any time throughout the school year.  To request products from the pantry, click here.

To donate products or to inquire about a business sponsorship, email Liz Baumann (ecoulston@saintmarys.edu).  Menstrual product donations can be delivered to 244 Student Center, Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, Indiana 46556.  You can also donate items directly to the pantry via our Amazon Wish List.
