Surplus auctions

Live Auctions

University of Washington Surplus conducts 6 - 8 live auctions every year. Live auctions are also webcast using Proxibid. Catalogs for new auctions are posted one week before the auction begins. We keep a link to our most recent auction posted in the interim. Live auction preview & registration takes place from 10am - 6pm the Friday before the auction, and from 8am - 10am the morning of the auction.


Owing to weather safety concerns in western Washington, the Saturday, October 15, 2016 live public auction has been canceled. The Surplus Store will also be closed Saturday, October 15.

The auction has been rescheduled for 10am, Saturday, October 29, 2016. Auction preview & registration will occur Friday, October 28, 10am – 6pm.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause. Our first concern is the safety of our staff and our customers. We look forward to seeing you on the 29th.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
