Public Services

Northern Arizona University is required by law to maximize use of all assets and, when it has no further use for them, maximize returns on their sale. We are not allowed to give surplus property away. The primary role of the Surplus Property department is to ensure that the excess property generated by NAU will be handled in a method that both maximizes the return to the University and meets the disposal requirements of the State and Federal governments.

Items available for purchase through public sales often include office furniture and equipment, household furniture, computers, filing cabinets, bicycles, vehicles, and much more. Property is added to our warehouse inventory daily. 

Stop by our warehouse (Building 77) to see our current inventory in stock during our public hours M-F, 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Please take note the following:

  •  We cannot hold items.
  •  All sales are final.
  •  Cash or check only.
  •  As-is, where is.
  •  No test drives on vehicles.
  •  Prices are subject to change without notice.


Items of considerable value or with market appeal are generally offered for sale by auction.

Please call 928-523-4163 for more information.


The Surplus Property Warehouse is located on south campus, 501 E. Pine Knoll Dr. - Building 77.
