Our Department


U Market is the primary purchasing tool for the University of Minnesota. Co-managed with Purchasing Services, it is an online platform for staff and faculty to order the supplies they need.

U Market has more than 40 specifically chosen suppliers and millions of items, such as office supplies, lab equipment and university apparel. If you need it, it’s on U Market!

The software is integrated with the University’s financial system (EFS) so ordering and checkout is as seamless as possible. Plus, due to the high volume or orders, we are able to negotiate discounted prices on nearly all items. For more reasons why U Market is the most efficient way to purchase at the U of M, click here


While U Market is the primary shopping tool for the University, U Market Services is the department that manages the entire supply chain experience. From receiving products and delivering items to resolving customer issues, we are involved every step of the way.

In addition, we offer departments a variety of other supply chain related services. Whether it’s secure storage, logistical assistance or inventory management, we’re here to help.

Feel free to contact us anytime you need assistance. We have an adept and able staff willing to go the extra mile to ensure departments like yours have the support they need.
