-- In Surplus Property, the property disposal request form has been revised, and users are asked to begin using this new form. The new form can be found at

-- Beginning this semester, Surplus Property is open to departments and the public on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m.-noon and 12:30-3 p.m. Surplus items can be purchased with cash, check or a departmental IDR. Appointments also can be scheduled by calling Surplus Property at 766-2340 or by emailing
