Retrieving Free Surplus Equipment
The University of Illinois is committed to maximizing the use of its equipment resources. To facilitate this, the University has implemented equipment redistribution processes and invested in surplus warehouse facilities and staff.
Departments in need of equipment can visit their campus surplus warehouse to identify what surplus equipment is available and assess the condition. Equipment retrieved from campus surplus is available without charge, other than transportation costs which vary by campus. It is important to note that surplus equipment can only be retrieved for University use. University equipment is not for personal use.
Some of the common items available at the campus surplus warehouses include desktop computers, laptops, printers, monitors, projectors, TVs, desks, chairs, tables and file cabinets.
There are two campus surplus warehouse facilities. One is located in Urbana (UIUC) and the other is located in Chicago (UIC). See below for more information on each warehouse.
