Wheelock Barn

2024 Update: The Wheelock Barn is permanently closed. There will no longer be public sales at this location. We are in the process of developing a new surplus property program. In the meantime, if you are a UVM affiliate please take advantage of the internal UVM Recycling listserv to search for items. You can sign up here.

For general public not affiliated with UVM we recommend looking into the following resources for surplus equipment:

Vermont State Surplus

Habitat for Humanity ReStore




Thanks for many great years at the Wheelock Barn!


How Surplus Property Sales Work

  • When surplus sales are happenining both the UVM community AND the general public are welcome to stop and shop.
  • Sales to the General Public: We accept checks only, payable to "University of Vermont." We do not accept credit cards or cash. All prices are inclusive of a State of Vermont 6% Sales Tax and a 1% Burlington Local Option Sales Tax for a total of seven (7%) Sales Tax. All sales are final. 
  • Sales and Donations to Non-Profit Organizations: Non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations must bring certificate of tax-exempt status and pay with an official agency check to receive a discount. 
  • Sales to UVM Departments: UVM departments may shop during our regular weekly Tuesday sale. Departments must bring a UVM Chart String to pay for items. Please use the Peoplesoft form to write your Chart String number legibly.
