Surplus Property

Surplus Property

Our purpose is to repurpose.

We collect university items no longer being used and find them a new home.

Surplus Property promotes a sustainable campus and community through good stewardship, one of our core values, and by supporting the university's conservation goals. Surplus Property is responsible for collecting and transferring The University of Texas at Austin's property to other organizations within the university system, public schools, and qualified assistance organizations.


Surplus REuse Store

The Surplus REuse Store operates using a sustainable model focused on recovering, repurposing, renewing and reselling university assets. The Surplus REuse Store is a way the general public can own a piece of UT at a reasonable price!


Online Auctions

The majority of our surplus furniture, vehicles, and other large items are sold to the general public through our weekly online auction process.
