Lost and Found

The Department of Public Safety and Police Services is the main Lost and Found location on campus.  Items of major value are held for safekeeping for up to six months.  After an appropriate time has elapsed, the items are disposed of according to applicable state law.  

Several buildings on campus also maintain a Lost and Found for items found in that building.  Items of minor value are kept at the areas for up to 30 days then disposed of to a local charitable facility.  Major value items are forwarded to the Department of Public Safety and Police Services within 48 hours of intake.  If you lost an item in any of the buildings listed below be sure to check with them as well as with our office.

TIP: Keep sight of your belongings at all times or secure items in a safe manner.

BIKES: If you bring your bicycle to campus be sure to register it for free with our easy online form (Michigan Tech ISO login required).  In the event that your bicycle is lost or stolen on campus, contact our office at 906-487-2216.  Bicycles found on campus will also be included in the listing of found items below.  Please contact us for more details if you think one of them could be yours.
