Surplus Furniture

UAlberta keeps gently used furniture in stock. Faculties and departments can request surplus furniture items for their offices or classrooms from Supply Management Services (SMS)

These items are typically in surplus stock. Unfortunately, SMS can’t guarantee any particular item will be in stock.
To request surplus furniture, email a detailed description of the items you need to furniture.surplus@ualberta.ca. SMS responds to furniture requests on a first-come-first-served basis. A technician will contact you as soon as SMS is able to process your request. 

Furniture Pick Up 

If you have furniture you no longer need, SMS will pick it up from your office or classroom. To request your pick up, email your completed Furniture Pick Up Form to smswareh@ualberta.ca

If you have questions about surplus furniture or your furniture pick up, contact the Surplus Assets Coordinator at 780-492-5393
