UNLV is tentatively targeting early 2017 as a launch date for accepting community donations to the Surplus Center in conjunction with the UNLV Foundation policies and procedures. The following draft information is subject to change pending the official launch.

If you have goods that you are not using you can give them a second home while enhancing the UNLV student experience through the sale of your donated goods.

All donors will receive a donation receipt.

The Surplus Center is located in the Thunder Warehouse (TWH) on the UNLV campus. The Surplus Center is situated behind the Thomas & Mack Center. To view on a Google map, click on the link below and type in Thunder Warehouse.
