40. Lost, Found, Stolen or Abandoned Property

(Revised: 2014)

Lost or found items should be reported to the University Police. Any item that is presumed stolen should be reported promptly to the University Police. Abandoned property of nominal value or size collected by the University Police will be stored by the Police Department. Larger items such as bicycles, motorcycles, automobiles and articles of considerable value will be held by the University Police. Within a 90-day period from the date any lost or abandoned property is reported to University Police, the rightful owner must make a claim thereon; upon proper proof, the article will be returned to the owner. A nominal charge may be levied for handling and storage of all property. After said 90-day period, the university may, at public auction, sell any property that has not been claimed, with proceeds derived from the handling, storage or sale of such property to be deposited in the university programming account, said funds to be used for the benefit of the student body.

For campuses located outside of Brazos County, a Lost and Found will be established and protocols put in place that are not in conflict with the above.
