Surplus furniture available for purchase

With the recent purchase of the 555 Pennsylvania Ave. "Newseum" building, JHU has taken ownership of all of the furniture and equipment that was contained within the building. In support of our commitment to sustainability and in an effort to offer some relief to departments experiencing financial hardship resulting from the COVID-19 budget impacts, we would like to offer at significantly discounted cost the full inventory of furniture and equipment.

You can view the furniture catalog online and then email Leana Houser, Waste Reduction and Recycling Manager, with a list of items you would like to purchase and/or any questions you may have.

Deliveries will be through a third-party moving company. Delivery costs will be the responsibility of the purchaser and added to the final sale. We will make every attempt to bundle deliveries to reduce individual departmental costs. All inquiries about this program can be directed to Leana Houser, Waste Reduction and Recycling Manager,

Additionally, the Hop Reuse Hub is relocating and we hope to sell as much of our current inventory as possible. You can view the inventory online. If your department is interested in purchasing furniture, please contact Brigid Gregory Trites at
