Lost & Found

I lost my property. How do I find out if it has been turned into Lost & Found?

If you think you have lost something on campus, you should call the Lost & Found department in that specific area. There are many Lost & Found departments located throughout the campus (see Related Information for a list of Lost & Found departments). Each department is responsible for keeping items for a minimum of 90 days. After 90 days, all items are given to UCPD for disposal.

A small amount of items are turned into the Police Department Lost & Found directly, where they are also kept for 90 days and then disposed of. You can call us at (310) 825-1227 and leave a message to report the item as lost. To report or search for lost or found property, see the link in Related Information.

If you have lost keys, sunglasses or prescription glasses, we cannot check for these items since we receive so many of them. If you wish to check for these items, you need to come to the front counter of the Police Department located at 601 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles.

What do I do with the property I found?

Turn found property into UCLA PD Monday - Friday, located at 601 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. If you would like to keep the item if no owner is found all applicable laws must be followed.
