Faculty and Staff can view surplus property on the third Tuesday of each month from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Individuals may transport items back to campus on their own or larger items can be transported by Property Control staff. University personnel will be required to complete a surplus equipment return form.
Computer equipment will only be released to Computer Coordinators, Computer Services, or CNAS Electronic Support. The reason for this restriction is that most computers have already had components removed by the preceding University departments/personnel and the units are generally not in good working order.
A list of items stored in surplus is not maintained. Please do not call Property Control asking if there are specific items at the warehouse. Examples of available property are: various media items, televisions, refrigerators, microwaves, office chairs, student chairs, metal and wood desks, tables, file cabinets, and vehicles.
Departments that select equipment to be returned to campus, and then send the equipment back to surplus within ninety (90) days, will be charged fifty dollars ($50) though budget transfer to Property Control.
