Surplus collects and redistributes unneeded property from departments on campus. Surplus disposes of and holds auctions when property is no longer useful to the university. We offer the following surplus property services:

  • Collection of furniture (desks, chairs, tables, etc.) and equipment (computers, laboratory equipment, etc.)
  • Delivery of recycled furniture or equipment to new department

Departments on campus can request a surplus pick by filling out the Property Transfer Form. Submit it to the Surplus department with proper signatures by faxing it to 747-8136 or by e-mailing it to then scheduling a pick-up date with the Surplus Coordinator at 915-747-7136.

Surplus property can be redistributed to departments on campus and will be delivered free of charge. Viewing of surplus property can be arranged, call the Surplus Coordinator at 915-747-7136 or e-mail for an appointment. The Surplus department will then fill out the Property Transfer Form with all necessary signatures.

The public, University employees and students are welcome to purchase property during an auction. Campus Bulletins are sent to the UTEP community the Thursday prior to every auction.
