Lost and Found
Campus Security is also responsible for looking after the University's Lost and Found service. Throughout the year numerous items including clothing, jewellery, textbooks, notes, identification, glasses, keys, etc., are turned into the office. All items are kept by Campus Security in a secure location for a period of 90 days and then disposed of according to policy. We tag all items and enter them into our database. If your name, student number, or telephone number is anywhere on the item we will do our best to get in touch with you by phone or email.
In the event you report a lost item to us and we do not have it, we will record your information and advise you via your Trent e-mail address if the item is found. Items often take time before they are delivered to the security office as there are several unofficial collection points (Library, College Porters).
