Lost and found advice

Lost and found

There are several steps that you should take in the event of losing or misplacing an item of value;

  • Return to the last place that you remember having the item on your person. If this was a public space then you should enquire about your item at the reception or cloakroom. If this was within your halls of residence, contact the Warden.
  • There are also several buildings across St Andrews that you should visit. These include the Student Union, the Library and the ASC.
  • If your item has yet to be located, contact Police Scotland Fife Division. Be prepared to give as full a description as possible of the item/s in question and if possible, provide a photograph.
  • If you are on facebook there are a number of pages which you could consult, including St Andrews Lost & Found.

Students are also advised to register their belongings on the UK National Property Register and BikeRegister.
