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.
To transfer items, please use the online form: New Surplus Form
Surplus equipment may be donated to qualifying schools, non-profit organizations and
social service agencies at a discounted rate of 50% off the Buy-it-Now pricing.
Excess surplus equipment such as tables, chairs, desks & partition walls will be donated free of charge.
Miscellaneous items with no pre-determined value assigned may be donated. These items will be determined by a designated procurement official.
All requests for donations of surplus property should be made in writing to the Director of Procurement Services (an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org will suffice).
The agency requesting donation will need to provide proof of their 501(c)(3) tax status.
The requesting organization will be required to provide all labor, tools, packing, loading and transportation needed to move the requested property.
NKU Surplus Property will not be able to honor all requests for donations as the surplus stock is sometimes limited. NKU reserves the right to reject any or all donations.
If readily available all components for the equipment will be donated (ex. Power cords, mice, keyboards) If not available it will be the responsibility of the donee to obtain these components.

Employees can purchase computers at the Monthly Surplus Sale.
Sales of surplus items directly from Surplus with buy-it-now pricing will now be conducted at various times throughout the year with dates posted on Procurement’s website. Employees will no longer be able to purchase items except on those designated dates and times. We plan to have one or two sales each month. More information will be forthcoming.
We will establish a minimum bid price, as determined by previous surplus property sales, and a "buy-it-now" price. These sales will be posted on our website and may be purchased at the "buy-it-now" price. At the "buy-it-now" price, the PC will be sold on a first come first served basis.
