Lost and Found

This site is updated weekly, but because some items may not get turned in right away, we invite you to check back regularly after the loss. If you identify an item you believe is yours, call 281-283-2222. Advise the tag number so that the item can be looked up. You will be asked for a detailed description for verification. You may also call 281-283-2222 at any time to report your loss; we actively try to return found items to its owner. 

As a courtesy, the Police Department maintains a limited Lost and Found collection for items left behind on campus.  If you find an item, please turn it in to the Police Department Building for processing and storage. If you have lost an item, contact the Police Department at 281-283-2222 to see if your lost item was returned. 

Please do not delay.  Due to storage limitations we only hold Lost and Found items for sixty (60) days before disposing of property. Also note, due to storage limitations, we cannot accept certain items.
