If you have lost something, you should always check with appropriate staff in the area you last saw it to see if it has been handed in there. For instance, with the enquiries desk if you believe something was lost in one of the libraries. If they don’t have it, then it may well have been handed in to Security.
All property that is handed in to Security is held at the Security Office and can be reclaimed from there. We will try and identify the owners of lost property, so would advise marking your contact details on items where possible. We are unable to insert memory sticks into University computers to identify the owners by file content, so please consider externally marking your memory stick to make it identifiable and distinctive from other memory sticks.
Any student ID cards handed in will be sent straight away to the Student Services Centre, Level 9, Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building. On receipt of the card the Student Services Centre will inform you by email that they have your card.
If anything is unclaimed after three months then it will be disposed of, where possible, via donating to a local charity.
We process passports, driving licences and bank cards as listed below:
- Return passports to the Passport Office (or the relevant embassy in respects to non-UK passports) after one week
- Return driving licences to the DVLA after one week
- Notify the relevant bank once a bank card is handed in, and either return it or destroy it depending on their procedures.
