Lost & Found Items Policy

The Information Desk accepts items found within the library and then sends them on to Mason Police, as appropriate. Upon receipt, all items are stored in a secure location. The Information Desk does not hold items for drop-off or pick-up. 

If you lost an item while visiting the library, you may submit a claim.

To best align with Mason Police policy, the GMU Libraries accept the following items:  

  • Wallets, purses, backpacks, etc. 
  • ID cards (including but not limited to George Mason University IDs, driver’s licenses, passports, etc.) 
  • Credit/debit cards 
  • Electronics (including but not limited to cell phones, laptops, tablets, computers, etc.) 
  • Keys (including but not limited to car keys, campus keys, mail keys, etc.) 
  • Prescription glasses  
  • Other high-priority items, as appropriate 

These items will be routed to Mason Police on a weekly basis. Items that fall outside of these guidelines may be disposed of as the library sees fit.
