Lost and Found

Library visitors are expected to monitor their belongings, especially valuables, at all times while using library facilities. Lost & Found items at the Library are temporarily kept at the Circulation Desk on the 2nd Floor of the Library.

Valuable belongings are turned in to the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor, & can be picked up there during Library Hours. If the lost item includes any identifying information, Circulation Desk Staff will attempt to contact you directly.  Valuable items such as laptops, cell phones, chargers & calculators, USBs, jewelry, wallets, purses, credit cards & ID’s are held at the Circulation Desk in a secure location for up to a week until they are eventually either claimed or turned over to Ryerson Student’s Union Lost & Found.

Possibly Stolen?  If you’ve lost a laptop computer or other expensive electronic device, and realize it right away, call Ryerson Security to file a possible theft report.

OneCard ID’s: Cardholders are notified by email when their card is turned in to the Circulation Desk staff.  Unclaimed cards are kept at the Circulation Desk.

Non-valuable items such as clothing, books, papers, shoes, water bottles, umbrellas, sunglasses, etc. are turned in at the Circulation Desk in the Library and held there. If the item is not at the Circulation Desk, the staff will direct you to the Ryerson Student’s Union Lost & Found. Unclaimed items are transferred to Ryerson Student’s Union Lost & Found at 3pm each day.

Ryerson University Library & Archives is not responsible for unattended personal items left in the Library, however we have established procedures for dealing with items turned in to our Circulation Desk and will take reasonable measures to secure valuables, protect privacy and relinquish items in a timely manner to Ryerson Student’s Union Lost & Found.
