Surplus Property

Due to the renovation of Founder's Hall, we have a larger than normal inventory of desks, office chairs, cabinets, and general office furniture. Please stop in and take a look during our business hours or contact Ryan at x6605 to make an appointment.


Viewing By Internal Departments

Departments are encouraged to view surplus items during the hours of operation. There is no cost for departments to claim surplused materials or equipment, but the item(s) must be used by the department and are not permitted to leave campus, be sold, or given to individuals for personal use. In some cases items can be donated, please review our donation procedures for more information.

In most cases an internal work order through the labor crew can be used to transfer the items, however if items have an NKU Asset tag then a Surplus Transfer Form must be filled to transfer the items to the receiving department's inventory. Please review our "How to Surplus Equipment and Computers" policy for further detail.

NKU has recently partnered with to auction off surplus equipment. If you have any interest in bidding on the equipment please visit:

You will need to first register as a bidder. You may do so by clicking the red "Register" box in the upper right hand corner. All question concerning or any equipment posted on should be sent to Worth Allen
