Surplus Computers

NDSU will regularly update the computers that are used on campus not meeting what NDSU deems as minimum requirements.  The computers are stripped of all information and some operating software is reloaded.

Computer Lottery System

If there are computers available at the time of auction, they will be sold on a lottery system.  You will need to be present to put your name into the lottery drawing for the opportunity to purchase one of computers.  You will also need to be present at the time of the drawing.  The sign up is from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  The drawing is at 11:30 a.m.  The first name drawn will get first pick of the computers, and so on.
