Furniture ‘Surplus’ Clarification

Monday, January 4th, 2021

For personnel moving offices and who need to go “replacement shopping” for office furniture, please email Sonia Rademacher (srademacher@georgefox.edu) for an appointment to select office items. Those items include:

  • Office desks
  • Office chairs
  • File cabinets
  • Book shelves, and
  • Random office supplies such as desk storage items, and a limited number of art frames

There is no need for an appointment if you only require office supplies.

For staff and faculty who are moving offices and require new items, please keep in mind that the quantities and style of furniture in surplus is limited.

If you do make an appointment to look at furniture, please have your office dimensions available so that those who are assisting you can know which desks to point out, as many desks are broken down for storage purposes, and some are designed for specific buildings on campus.

For all other furniture inquiries, please email Sonia.

Thank you!
