Dear UW Surplus Customers,

UW Surplus continues to work with our University partners to take the necessary steps to protect and safeguard our community. Safety and well-being is our number one priority. The UW Surplus Store is operating under temporary service adjustments to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

General Public Sales: The Surplus Store will be closed for in person shopping and browsing through the remainder of 2020. This closure is subject to extension as circumstances dictate. The UW Surplus Store will hold online public sales with select items available for curbside pick-up. New items will be posted to our online Surplus Store the first and third Tuesday of every month. We also have a large variety of items available for bids via online auctions. You can also stay in the loop about items available for online purchase by signing up for our newsletter HERE.

UW Departments, State Agencies, and Non-Profit Sales: During this time, we will continue to provide services to UW Departments, Non-Profits, and Government Agencies purchasing on behalf of their organizations. The Surplus Store is open for priority groups Mondays and Thursdays, by appointment only. You can learn more about making an appointment under the “Store Hours” header above. You can learn more about establishing your group and payment methods HERE.

Please note: Employees shopping for their own personal use are considered members of the public and may only shop using the methods available for general public sales.

Surplus is committed to keeping you informed as the situation evolves. We will post service updates online as they become available. If you have any questions, please contact Surplus Property at or 206-685-1573.

We do what we do for all the design enthusiasts, bargain hunters, environmentalists, repurposers, DIY-ers, artists, and surplus aficionados out there. We look forward to the time we can open our doors safely and welcome you all back. Until that time, stay safe out there, Huskies.

-The UW Surplus Team
