Lost and Found

The MSU Mailroom serves as the official Lost and Found for the Minot State University campus.

Location: MSU Mailroom, first floor of the Student Center Atrium, east side
Hours: 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday
Phone: 701-858-3010 or 701-858-4130

Items are often turned in at buildings and offices nearest to where they were found and should be checked first. Items lost for example in the library would most likely be turned in and kept at its front desk for several days. If not claimed there, the items will be sent on to the MSU Mailroom.

Found items are held for 30 days at the MSU Mailroom, though expensive items are often held longer. If not claimed, items will either be thrown in the trash (single gloves, water bottles, etc.) or if they have value, passed on to Goodwill.

Reporting and Claims
If anyone loses an item, please contact Minot State University. Even if the item has not been turned in, the information will be logged and the owner will be called if the item turns up. Likewise, if MSU has an item that potentially matches a lost item, MSU will need a detailed description of the item and a photo ID at the time of pickup for verification.

Stolen Items
If an item is stolen on campus, the MSU Office of Safety and Security should be contacted.
