University Surplus & Salvage
What we do
The University Surplus and Salvage Department (Surplus) receives and sells University of Utah surplus property from building 627. Vehicles, higher value property or some one of a kind property can be sold through online auction or bid. Surplus is also part of the sustainability efforts on campus. Surplus gathers and processes metals, electronic waste and other end of life property and sends it to downstream markets per University of Utah recycling and disposal requirements.
Education and Government Have First Choice
Federal agencies, state agencies, university departments, and public education agencies may purchase surplus property as soon as it is displayed in the Surplus Warehouse. Direct methods of government payment are required. Cash and personal funds are not considered direct methods of government payment.
Property Available for Public Sale
The public, university employees and students are welcome to purchase surplus property beginning on the public sale date or public date listed on property for sale. Most property has a fifteen day government surplus cycle. See Sales paragraph at this link for more information.
