Terms of Use

Hey there MidTrade users. We built MidTrade to improve the convenience and efficiency of college student lifestyles. We ask that you agree to these Terms of Use when you access our content, website, or servers. If you do not agree with them, please do not use MidTrade!


If you are a college student with a valid school email address, we grant you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive nonassignable, non-sublicensable license to access MidTrade in compliance with the Terms of Use; unlicensed access is unauthorized. Please view our EULA for detailed information.

MidTrade is a tool that allows college students to find local specials and buy, sell, and sublease with other students at almost any college or university in the United States. The actual contract for sale is directly between the seller and the buyer. The pricing and description of individual items is displayed by MidTrade, but it is solely informational and is inputted by users who post items. MidTrade has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety, or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item. Local specials are subject to change at any moment. Only specials with the Verification Check can be considered truly accurate. These specials were verified by the local business themselves.

MidTrade may moderate MidTrade access and use in our sole discretion, such as blocking, filtering, deletion, delay, omission, verification, and/or access/account/license termination.

MidTrade is not directly associated with any college or university. The logos and names used on the site are subject to their own copyright laws and protections.

To view all terms of our license agreement, please read our EULA.
