Lost property

The University accepts no responsibility for the security of user’s personal belongings.  Please take care of your belongings and label portable devices with your full name, student reference number or username.

Any lost property found in the Hugh Owen Library or Physical Sciences Library should be handed in at the enquiry desk in the Hugh Owen Library.

Lost property will be logged on our Lost Property database

Staff will attempt to identify the owner of any lost property and, where possible, will contact them to let them know the item has been found.  

Items will be returned in the condition they were received.

Users searching for items lost in the Library should contact Information services with a detailed description of the item as well as the date it was lost.

Any person claiming property will be asked to produce their Aber Card or other photographic id to confirm identity and will be asked for detailed information about the item to prove ownership. If the item being claimed contains photographic ID, Information Services staff will check that the image matches the claimant.

If lost property is not claimed within the retention period it will be recycled or disposed of responsibly. All personal data is removed and securely destroyed.
