Lost and found

Among the items we routinely take in as found are cell phones, wallets/purses, electronic equipment, driver's licenses and ATM cards. If your name or other form of ID is with the item, you can call 315.312.5555 to claim your property. Police personnel make every attempt to notify owners of identifiable property.

Cash or items having a high dollar value can only be retrieved by appointment, as they are kept in a high-security safe.

Check for missing keys, glasses, clothing, notebooks/binders and other miscellaneous items at the University Police Department. Due to the volume of these items, police personnel cannot tell you over the phone if we have these items .

State-issued keys that allow access to campus properties are turned in and the Locksmith is consulted to identify owner.

If you have lost your SUNY Oswego ID card, you will need to contact ID and Dining Monday-Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, at 315.312.2588.

Other points on campus where found property is frequently turned in include the Marano Campus Center Help Desk at 315.312.6789 and the Main Circulation Desk at Penfield Library 315.312.2560; however, all property is eventually turned over to University Police by the staff members at these two locations.

All found property is to be turned over to law enforcement. There are usually provisions for you to claim found property you turn in after the required time period has lapsed and attempts have been made to return the property to the  owner.

Found an item? Bring it to the University Police Office at Pathfinder Hall.

Lost an Item?  You will need to file a Lost Property Report in person with University Police.
