Property Disposition is gradually reopening to U-M units and bid customers

Property Disposition will reopen following state of Michigan requirements and U-M guidelines. Here are the details for the reopening:

  • Deliveries - We are now taking appointments for deliveries from the Ann Arbor, Flint, and Dearborn campuses as well as Michigan Medicine. Please send your Declaration of Surplus form (DOS)  at property.disposition@umich.edu to schedule your delivery.

All safety precautions set forth by the state of Michigan and U-M (e.g., social distancing, face coverings, etc.,) will be followed. If you have any questions, please contact us at property.disposition@umich.edu. Thank you for your support of Property Disposition.
