Assets & Surplus


When a department can no longer use or no longer has the space for equipment and/or furniture, it becomes university surplus TWU Facilities will maintain the better items for reuse on campus. But because storage space is limited, much of TWU surplus will be donated*, sold at auction, recycled/, or disposed of as waste.

*Only 501c3 (non-profit/charitable organizations) are eligible to receive TWU property as donations.


TWU uses an online service, called LSOAuctions.

TWU will regularly sell surplus items via an online auction with Lone Star Auctioneers, Inc. The sale can be found at LSOauctions. (TWU’s landing page) When Auctions are live, prices and payment information will be listed on their website. We will continue to publish upcoming sales online and through InsideTWU.
