Losing personal items can be frustrating and stressful. Hopefully we can help!

  1. If you come across a lost item on College of Saint Benedict property, please turn it in as quickly as possible. In the meantime though, make sure to keep it safe and secure.
  2. Complete the Lost and Found form. As you will see on the form, we offer two options for turning in found items:
    1. Drop it off at the CSB Security Office in person.
    2. If you are unable to drop off the item, you can request that a College of Saint Benedict security officer picks up the found item from your location.
  1. Act quickly! The longer you wait to report a lost item, the less likely it is to be found.
