Surplus Property Inspection/Withdrawal

Surplus items located in the Surplus Warehouse are open ONLY to University employees for inspection, selection and repurposing of surplus on campus. Departments are encouraged to contact Surplus as the first sources of supply in lieu of purchasing new monitors, furniture, cables, office supplies, laboratory equipment and/or other miscellaneous items when possible. Please have your University I.D. with you when you visit the Surplus Warehouse. Selection and transfer of surplus intended for repurposing is strictly prohibited for personal use. Surplus that is tagged UTHSC Online Auction Surplus Sale is for sale on GovDeals online Internet auction and Surplus tagged SOLD via GovDeals online Internet auction has been sold and is NOT available for repurposing on campus.

Surplus Warehouse is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 3:00 PM and you are encouraged to contact us at 901-448-2550 to check inventory and/or directions prior to visiting for current inventory. Pictures of surplus may be provided to a department prior to inspection at the warehouse. If a department has an URGENT need for surplus property and the representative cannot come over during the normally scheduled hours of inspection, please contact us to schedule an appointment. You can also email us at and someone in Surplus will get back to you.

Surplus property in the warehouse is generally available at no charge to department(s) by Surplus, and there is no charge by Logistics for pickup and delivery. As soon as the department representative has selected an item or items for transfer to their department, Surplus personnel will assist in filling out the Surplus Property Issuance Form(s) with the required information. Selected items will be tagged with the department representative's name and the item(s) are on HOLD for pick up by Logistics personnel. The completed form is forwarded to the Facilities Work Order Coordinator to schedule the pickup and delivery. Logistics personnel should contact the person indicated as the contact on the form prior to coming over to the department with the surplus.

If there are any changes regarding delivery, the department must contact Facilities Logistics directly at 901-448-5661. Departments also have the option of taking the item(s) with them or they can pick them up with their own vehicles at no charge. Departments are urged to use Logistics for heavy and bulky items for safety concerns.

Computers - When a surplus computer is required, the requestor must contact ITS Customer Technical Support at 901-448-2222 in order to verify availability. If available, a work order will be created by ITS and a technician will be assigned to contact the requestor to discuss the department's requirements and the cost for ITS to provide the service (software etc.) Do not contact Surplus as we do not stock or redistribute surplus computers.

Hold/Reserve Policy

Surplus selected for repurposing to a department can only be reserved for two (2) weeks after the date the surplus was selected. Items that have not been picked up at the end of two (2) weeks will be returned to inventory for selection by others.
