Two ways to see if University Police Department (UPD) has a lost item:
NOTE: If you filled out the form and we have your item, we will contact you with details on how to retrieve it. UPD will only contact you if we have your lost property.
Owners will be required to show identification, and provide some proof of ownership (which can include a detailed description or sales receipt) before claiming an item. UPD staff will contact owners of property that has visible contact information.
If you receive a notice that we have your property, you may come and retrieve property from the police station located at 1801 7th Street (across from MLK Union) weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:00 p.m. (excluding holidays).
