Lost property

Security Services manage lost property. If you are looking for a lost item, please email Safety and Security Services Team with the following information:

  • the date, time and location the item was lost (if known)
  • a detailed description of the item (colour, brand, distinctive markings etc)
  • your contact details

If you have found lost property, we can either attend your location on-campus to take a report and possession of the property or you can bring the item(s) to Safety and Security Services in the Services Building at Newcastle campus (Callaghan) or Facilities Management Building at Central Coast campus (Ourimbah) as soon as possible.

Most lost property is kept for one month, after that time if the owner cannot be identified we will dispose of the item appropriately.
