At IUB, in the STCs and RTCs, what is the lost-and-found policy?
Purses, wallets, USB flash drives, and negotiable items (e.g., cash, checks, credit cards, student IDs) found in any Student Technology Center (STC) are locked in a cabinet in that lab. If you've lost such an item, check with the consultant on duty; if there is no consultant on duty, call the Information Commons (IC) Technology Center Consulting (TCC) desk at 812-855-3802, and someone will come open the cabinet.
Non-negotiable items (e.g., cell phones, books, coats, umbrellas, disks, CDs) are placed in lost and found boxes in the labs in which they are found, and items are recycled or moved to the main campus Lost and Found periodically. Check the lost and found box in the lab where you lost the item first. Then, check the main campus Lost and Found office in Ballantine Hall 031 (812-855-7372), open Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
For information about STC hours, see Where can I find out when the IUB and IUPUI STCs are staffed?
Below are some specific procedures depending on location:
Herman B Wells Library, IC, and STCs on the fifth floor
All items found in the IC, IC2, LI 502, and LI 503 are taken to the Wells Library West Tower circulation desk (first floor off the main lobby). Periodically, these items are then taken to the East Tower circulation desk, the Wells Library's central Lost and Found location. Items are sent weekly (or more frequently if necessary) to the main campus Lost and Found office in Ballantine Hall 031 (812-855-7372), open Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
Note: No items are kept at the IC information services desk (i.e., the "Ask Questions Here" desk).
Items found in the RTCs
Items found in the Residential Technology Centers (RTCs) are taken to the respective Center Desk.
