The University Surplus operation is a part of the Recycling Surplus and Solid Waste Division. Surplus manages the auction and sale of university assets that are no longer in active use.
To surplus your university equipment, please visit the Asset Change Request page and fill out the form.
If you have any questions before or during the surplus process, please visit the Asset Accounting page and click on Instructions to read through the step by step process as you surplus your items.
Please note, Surplus does not pick up or deliver items from departments, and is operated by appointment only. For all surplus deliveries to include City North American or other third party delivery service, please submit a Surplus Delivery Request and we will add you to our schedule. If you have any questions, please contact the Surplus office at 208-885-2091.
Hours of Operation
Surplus store is typically open Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. when University of Idaho is open.
Drop Off times are available by appointment only from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday when University of Idaho is open. The physical address is 903 Perimeter Drive, Moscow, ID.
Appointments may be booked by visiting the Surplus Delivery Request page. Only inventoried items will be picked up by City North American for delivery to Surplus. For questions, please call 208-885-2091 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the University receiving federal grants, everything being delivered to Surplus must be accounted for through VandalWeb whether it has a tag or not. Once you have logged into VandalWeb select the following options: Employees - Financial Tasks - Asset Change/Surplus Transfer Request.
When closed, University Surplus gates will remain closed and locked—do not place materials or equipment outside of gates, as these items will not be counted as being received by Surplus staff, and will not be removed from a departments inventory list because of improper delivery.
