Lost and Found

Lost and Found

The CARES Department maintains Lost and Found for members of the Barnard community. Our function is to keep items safe and secure while we proactively work to return belongings to their owners. 

If you believe you lost an item in a Barnard facility, please submit your information below. 

You may email us at lostandfound@patriciagoldinteriors.com or
call the CARES Line at (212) 854-3362 for assistance. 
If you find a lost item, you may submit information via this form.
Found items can be turned in directly to CARES Response in Elliott Hall First Floor or Community Safety in Barnard Hall 104. 

Please note that items will be kept by the CARES Department for 30 days, after which they will be removed from inventory and either discarded or donated to a local charity.

If you are looking for a lost item, you may complete this online form.  You will receive response within 48 hours with information whether the item may have been turned in or seeking additional information.
