On-site Auctions

Each year, Lion Surplus holds several on-site auctions, which are free and open to the public. The store routinely coordinates with University departments wishing to place University-owned specialty items on auction websites. Follow us on Facebook to stay updated on upcoming events and even get a sneak peek at items up for bid. Visit our eBay and GovDeals pages to bid on specialty items throughout the year.

If you are a Penn State employee and have a University-owned piece of equipment you would like to advertise on either site, please contact Colton Housel or Chelsea Rupert at 814-865-4371.
