News & Updates

Welcome to U Market, the University of Minnesota’s e-procurement website!

RESOLVED: Chrome, EFS, U Market Cart issue

A long-awaited fix has been installed to correct the problem that occurred when people pulled U Market carts into EFS using Google Chrome. The issue began in 2020 due to a change Google made to its web browser’s security (the SameSite settings).

If you disabled any features in Chrome to address this problem, please verify your browser is using or has been restored to its default settings. Chrome can again be used when processing U Market orders through to EFS.

We thank you for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

New Cylinder Supplier

On January 1, 2021 the supplier for U Market gas cylinders changed from Matheson to Airgas.

As a cylinder customer this is good news! Not only is the overall cost of gas less, but their daily rental rates are 30% lower.

To begin saving money, return your empty Matheson cylinders by following these steps. Once your old cylinder has been returned, place a new order on U Market to take advantage of the new contract pricing and rates.

The part numbers for cylinders will remain unchanged under the new contract.
