Surplus Property & Moving Services


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 (Open to the Public)

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 (Open to the Public)

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


Campus Departmental Reuse

Visit the Surplus Property warehouse on Fridays to view and obtain items for your department. No appointment necessary for faculty or staff.
