Lost and Found
The University processes all lost and found items on campus through the Central Lost & Found facility, which is located in the Parking Facilities Office at Purdue West Shopping Plaza.
Any items found should be turned in to the main office of the building where the item was found. Any items found outside of a building may be turned in to Central Lost & Found, the Purdue Police Department, or a building near where the item was found. Items found in buildings are held for 1-2 weeks and then transferred to Central Lost & Found. Items that remain unclaimed after 2 months may be claimed by the finder during the third month. The finder may claim the item by presenting the finder's receipt issued when the item was turned in.
If you are searching for a lost item, first check the department/building where the item was lost.
To report a lost item, a card may be completed at Central Lost & Found or by calling 765-494-2125. Office hours are 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.
