The University of Vermont Davis Center is the center for Lost and Found for all lost items on UVM campus.

Located on the first floor of the Davis Center, the Lost and Found hub is home to hundreds of items collected from locations all around campus: From Transportation and Police Services, to the Waterman and Howe Library. Every week items are delivered from these various locations to the Davis Center, logged in our computer system, and stored for a period of 30 days.

After 30 days, unclaimed items are donated to a local charity as appropriate. Perishable items such as food and personal care items are disposed of immediately. Credit cards, ID’s, and Wallets are locked in a safe handled with discretion by our building managers. Every effort is made to contact the owner cards and IDs through email or call. To ensure items are safely returned to their owner we ask that claimants give a detailed account of their lost item and some form of identification.

For items that have yet to reach the Lost and Found hub you can create a Claim through the information desk either in person or over the phone with a detailed description of your item. With every new shipment of lost items we will review claims to see if they match any items we collect. Our team at the Davis Center is committed to returning lost property to its rightful owner.
