Surplus Property

Welcome to the East Carolina University Surplus Property Department. We are located at 220 Industrial Boulevard. The ECU Surplus Property Office is responsible for tracking and disposing of state property in accordance with State policies and procedures.

Surplus Property Available for Campus Use at No Charge

All departments can view surplus property items for use back on campus. Viewing is by appointment only.

Surplus Sales

ECU Surplus Property Cash Sales
The Surplus Property Office conducts a monthly sales event to allow the general public to purchase surplus items no longer needed by the University. Sales will be conducted the 1st Thursday of each month (except for July). All public sales are conducted from 8:30 am – 11:00 am. There will be no pre-sale viewing period before the sales event. Surplus property bid pick-ups are not permitted during retail store hours of operation.  Note: The intent of the surplus property cash sales is to allow the general public an opportunity to obtain items no longer needed by the University at a nominal cost. Items purchased from these sales should not be used back on campus or cost reimbursement to the purchaser from a university department.

Cash Only: Small items cash and carry upon checkout. Large items must be picked up from 1:30-4:00pm on the day of the sale and 8:15 am until 11:00 am on the day after the sale. The warehouse closes for lunch daily from 12:00-1:00pm

Obtaining Surplus Property from Other State Agencies

Sometimes an ECU department may like to obtain surplus property from another State agency to use on campus.  The State Surplus Property Office has procedures in place to accommodate the transfer of state-owned property.  Some transfers are offered at no cost, while other transfers may have cost applied.  To view items available from State Surplus in Raleigh, visit

Departments interested in purchasing State surplus items should contact ECU Surplus, at 328-9941 or email for guidance and assistance.
