Lost property

Note: The lost property service is now located in the Security Office at Gate 2 (Kensington).

Lost property found is held for a period of two months. Please help us return lost property by writing your name and student number on books, notes, folders and other items. 

Finding lost property

Please hand in any lost items to the Library, Security and Traffic Management or to any Security Officer. Security and Traffic Management will contact the owner by phone, email or by letter. If any lost property received is unable to be identified, Security and Traffic Management will still hold the item in case the owner contacts them.

You can now report your lost property online.

Otherwise, contact Security and Traffic Management on 9385 5111 to report lost items. You will be asked to provide:

  • your name and zID (if you have one)
  • your contact details (mobile number and email address)
  • a description of the item
  • where and when the item was lost.
Collecting property

Lost property may be collected from the Security and Traffic Management office at Gate 2, which is open 24/7. Please note you will be asked:

  • to prove your identity and, if necessary, ownership of the item
