Resale of Hardware

All University computers must be returned to ISTS for decommissioning. University computers remain the property of UniSA until they have been decommissioned and sold.

Staff can purchase decommissioned computers from our auction partners Mason Gray Strange (MGS).

  • If you are getting a new computer and want to keep the old one place a note on it when it’s being replaced. This should advise that you would like to purchase the computer prior to auction. Include your name, email address, and a phone number.
  • The computer must be returned to ISTS. All data will be deleted. The operating system (which is licenced to UniSA) and all software will be removed.   
  • MGS will pick up the computer and install a new operating system. No other software will be installed.
  • MGS will contact you with the cost based on current market value. They will organise the sale if you decide to go ahead.
  • If you do not want to buy the computer it will be auctioned.
  • If you are leaving the University and would like to purchase your computer please contact the IT Help Desk.
