Where is surPLUs?
surPLUs is located on the far west side of campus, past Morken and the Print Shop, near Facilities Management. It’s a big gray warehouse with a chain link fence around it.
Surplus shoppers find well functioning articles ranging from books, binders & office supplies to chairs, large desks, tables and even couches.
