Surplus Property is responsible for accepting and accounting for all excess property within the University of Kentucky system. Our mission is to first reuse inventory by checking items back out to departments in need at no charge. Once all usable items have been made available to the University community for ten business days, Surplus then works to donate, sell by auction, or recycle remaining unneeded property.
Surplus Property staff warehouse and redistribute movable surplus equipment for the University organizational units. Surplus is also responsible for reviewing property transfers and trade-ins, as well as managing disposal of University-owned animals.
University Surplus Operations has moved from its longstanding location at the Reynolds Building, 349 Scott Street to a new address at:
Vaughan Warehouse and Office
1247 Versailles Road
Lexington, KY 40508
The new location is near the intersection of Versailles and Forbes Roads; a map reference is available for persons who may visit the warehouse in person to review and checkout items on behalf of their departments. For University departments only.
