5.4 Lost and Found

A lost and found station is located at the front desk where packages are received and the Duncan Avenue Apartments office. 

Items found in a residence hall or apartment should be turned in at the front desk. 

Items will be logged with a description of the item, location where it was found, who found the item and the date it was found. 

If the item has identification, the hall administrative specialist will try to contact the individual. 

Items of value (jewelry, watches, wallets, checkbooks, keys, fobs, etc.) will be locked up in a secure location within the hall. 

Items are disposed of on the closing day of each semester or no earlier than 30 days from the noted date the item was found. 

The assistant director for building services is responsible for the disposal of lost and found items.
