Virginia Surplus Store
The Surplus Redistribution Center (SRC), a division of the Property Management Unit in Financial Services, is the surplus repository for West Virginia University and is located near the Westover bridge in the former General Woodworking building.
All surplus items are available for redistribution to WVU Campuses after receipt by the SRC. Items may be viewed and designated prior to the auction date listed.
You may contact Robert Clark at 304.293.5946 or Randy Powers at 304.293.8494 to arrange for acceptance or redistribution of items to/from the SRC. Please read the list of items that the SRC will not accept prior to arranging for pickup.
When the SRC surplus level approaches full all remaining surplus items are offered to the general public at an open auction. Please read over the Terms and Conditions for the auctions. The auction is held at WVU Storage & Surplus Center which, on auction days, opens 2 hours prior to the beginning of bidding to view surplus items.
