Abandoned Items

Housing Main  -  List of Policies

After a resident has moved out of the hall, apartment or suite, an item is considered abandoned if it is left behind.  Abandoned property will be inventoried, packed and stored by Housing and Residential Life staff. Residents will have up to 30 days to claim their belongings (after notifying Housing and Residential Life staff in writing) after having officially checked out. After 30 days, staff will dispose of abandoned items pursuant to California Civil Code. Housing and Residential Life staff members are not responsible for abandoned items. The resident will be charged an initial $25 for packing and handling plus any applicable storage fees, along with any other charges or fees associated with the Improper Check Out policy.
