Lost & Found is maintained by the GVSU Police Department. Please note: Many buildings on campus hold items for some time before turning them into our lost and found.

To retrieve an item, please call 616-331-3255 to make sure a supervisor is on duty, as our lost and found is secured. You will also need to bring with you a picture ID to retrieve any and all items.

All items of value are held for 180 days and non-valuables for 90 days. After that time, items are donated to local area charities.


Please call 616-331-3255 or stop by our office and give a description of the lost item. We will attempt to match what you have lost with any similar items that may have been turned in to our department. If we cannot match your item, we will log your information and description in our database and contact you if it is found.


Please bring the item to the Police Department so we can attempt to match the item to found items in our LOST database.

Our Lost and Found Database is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week simply by calling 616-331-3255.
