University Surplus & Salvage

What We Do

The University Surplus and Salvage Department receives and sells University of Utah surplus property.

Education and Government Have First Choice

Surplus property is offered to federal agencies, state agencies, University departments, and public education institutions first, then to the public. Federal, State, and Public Education agencies may purchase surplus property as soon as it is displayed in the surplus warehouse.

Property Available for Public Sale after 15 Days

The public, University employees and students are welcome to purchase surplus property after the government surplus cycle (Utah Code 63A-2-402) expires. Presently this cycle is fifteen days.

Where Property Can Be Viewed

Most surplus property is displayed and available for inspection in building 627. Please come and explore the three floors of surplus equipment in our historic building. The building was once part of Fort Douglas and it is located among University of Utah Student Housing.
