Each academic building on campus, has its own Lost and Found, located in the dean's office. During the school year, regular pickups for transfer of lost and found items to Hammes Mowbray Hall are scheduled twice a month.

All items will be held for a minumum of 30 days, after which they will be disposed of by donating to a charitable organization such as clothing (St. Vincent DePaul) and eyeglasses/sunglasses (Lions Club, St Joseph Hospital). Proper identification on your valuables, such as an e-mail address or telephone number helps us return your property to you. Anyone claiming property at the lost and found area must show Notre Dame ID or a driver’s license. Lost and found University ID’s will be returned to the Card Services Office, 423 Grace Hall (574) 631-7814.
