Lost and Found

The Lost and Found is located at the Security Desk on the first floor of the Metro State University Library and Learning Center. If you have lost something, please stop there to inquire about your item; otherwise, visit the Public Safety and Security Office in Founders Hall. You may also contact Public Safety and Security by phone at 651.775.0444 or by email.


This Lost and Found Policy applies to Metro State University, but does not apply to the Dayton’s Bluff branch of the Saint Paul Public Library.

The Metro State University Library and Learning Center is not responsible for the security of personal items brought into the library. Patrons are expected to keep their belongings and valuables within their possession at all times.

Lost and found items will be stored by Public Safety and Security in Founders Hall until they are claimed by their owner for 30 days (for low value items) to 60 days (for high value items). Value is determined by Public Safety and Security. These hold times are subject to change, so Public Safety and Security should be contacted for current practice. Unclaimed items will be discarded, recycled, or donated to local charitable organizations.
