Locating a lost item

We strongly encourage people to check the Crowdfind system (above) and call ahead before coming to check Lost and Found for missing items, as the position may not be staffed on certain days due to changes in staffing needs. Please allow 2-3 days for any responses to inquiries about lost items, as it may take time for items to reach our main office from satellite locations across campus.  

Turning in a found item

Found items can be turned in to Lost and Found during regular hours listed above or can be sent via Campus Mail.  After hours, found items can be placed in secure lockers directly adjacent to Lost and Found.
