How to find out if a college is selling gym equipment

Hello all, I have seen that many of the posters on this site have mentioned they got their equipment from sales that happen at colleges they live near. I was wondering for those that have had this experience is it common knowledge when these sales go on or do you have to contact the universities? I have tried to contact a few universities that are near me but I either get no response or the individual I get a hold of has "NO CLUE" who to ask. Any ideas or suggestions help, thanks in advance.

When Wake Forest was selling their C2s for $100 it was just listed on Craigslist. Didn't check CL fast enough that day.....

I checked it fast enough that day was responded to and told when and what time to pick it up, called the day they told me to come get it in the email to ask a question and they sold it to someone else...... Good thing you didn't make the drive from Greenville.

I googled " University of XX surplus" and found a few within my area. Another option is http://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/browse/home WFS, just like craigslist you need to check frequently.
