ISU Surplus

About Us

ISU Surplus (formerly Asset Recovery) is designed to first redistribute university assets to other departments, state funded entities or tax supported organizations throughout the State of Iowa. After those avenues of disposal have been explored, all remaining materials are made available for sale to the general public. Items are sold either through the warehouse or through bids.
