About BEN's Attic
Internal Online Surplus Property Site for redistribution of goods
Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania's Online Surplus Site known as BEN’s Attic.
BEN's Attic is an online application hosted on the University of Pennsylvania Purchasing
Services website which provides a service for online auctions or sales for other
departments which have surplus equipment. It is our mission to provide an online
application for the Faculty and Staff at the University of Pennsylvania to repurpose
and sell quality surplus goods. All faculty and staff members with a PennKey
may view, suggest, or purchase items and will be required to enter their Business
Adminstrator's name which may be validated by the System Administrator. Before
proceeding, please read all the policies governing the use of this service. If you
have questions, contact us by phone at (215) 898-7218, or through e-mail at
The Office of the Comptroller is responsible for proper management and control of
University assets (see Financial Policy # 1106.5 Plant Assets – Property Management
and #1106.3 Plant Assets- Retirements). Please direct all questions pertaining to management of University assets to Beth Knaul.
In instances where the transportation of items from the seller to the buyer requires professional assistance, when the move of items
is between two University owned buildings contact Facilities and Real Estate Services (FRES).
For move of items between two non-University buildings or between one University owned and one private building,
contact Penn Building Services (PBS).
If you are a University faculty or staff member, please go the Login link to access
the BEN's Attic system to view listings. No registration necessary! Please log-in
using your PENN key.
