All lost property is sent to the Security reception on the campus where it’s found. In most cases, we’ll keep lost property for two months before donating it to charity.

Lost personal ID or bank cards

Passports, bank cards and driving licences are only held for one week. After one week, the passports are returned to the passport office, driving licences to the DVLA and bank cards are destroyed to prevent any unlawful transactions.

What happens when my item is found?

Any lost items found will be sent to the campus Security Reception. The Security team will make every effort to identify and contact you, so it’s a good idea to write your name on commonly lost items like books, papers, diaries and memory sticks.

If you lose your ID card, the team can contact you via the Student Hub so make sure your contact details are up to date.
