Pick up times will need to be approved by the Surplus Warehouse staff.

We are taking every precaution to keep our staff and the visiting departments safe. Please adhere to our guidelines and our scheduling process. We will not allow anyone in the warehouse or to pick up items unless they have an appointment. Thank you for keeping UAB safe!
