Lost and Found

Cone University Center utilizes the web application, Crowdfind to manage the items placed in our lost and found inventory. The Crowdfind system can be searched for various items and allows guests to file a claim for an item at any time, and from any device!


Items that are believed to have been lost by an owner, may be returned to any Cone Center Information Desk.


To inquire about a lost item that may have been turned in:

  1. Check the Crowdfind database in where you believe the item was lost. See items:
  2. If your item isn’t listed, please file a claim:

Lost items are kept in Cone Center for a maximum of 14 days. Guests are not permitted to search the physical lost and found inventories in the Student Centers. Individuals must fill out the claim form through Crowdfind and provide an adequate description of the item before the item will be shown to a claimant.

Guests looking for lost items should also check with Police and Public Safety.


Individuals claiming an item must fill out the form associated with their item on the database. This can be done by clicking “details” under the image of the item and answering the questions. A Cone Center staff member will either message you with a “match”, ask for additional information or reject your claim if sufficient information isn’t given. Once notified, you will have 48 hours to make arrangements to claim your lost item.

Please allow a minimum of 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday) for a confirmation or rejection of a match. Once a “match” has been made, claimants may pick up their items at the Information Desk. Claimants must come in person to claim their own items and provide a photo identification that matches the information filled out on the claim form. Contact information will be logged before the item(s) will be released.


If turned in to the Cone Center, the following items will be surrendered to the University Police Department immediately:

  • Any item presumed to be stolen
  • Cash
  • Government Issued Identification, Passports, Visas, etc.
  • High Value Items (e.g. jewelry, laptops, debit/credit cards, laptops and electronics)
