Lost property

Although there is no official lost property area in Blackett, we do sometimes have things handed in to us at the Student Admin Office. It might also be worth asking down in the main reception, level 2 Blackett, as items are sometimes handed in there if we're closed. If your item has not been handed in at either of these places then you should check the main security office on level 1 of the Sherfield Building. They act as the main office for lost propert across the campus.

Please see the ID Card Office. They are based on level 1 of the Sherfield Building.

If you need an extension to your ID card because you are staying here over the Summer for a placement, e.g., UROP,  please let your UROP Supervisor or the Administrator for the Research Group hosting your UROP know so they can get in touch with the Records team in Registry to extend your registration date at the College.

How do I register my locker?

The Department has some lockers available for undergraduate students to use for an academic year. At the beginning of the academic year, the Undergraduate Office will release the lockers for students to secure. These are allocated on a first-come first served basis. There is a £5 refundable deposit students must pay to secure a locker. This will be returned at the end of the academic year so long as the locker has been cleared out and the key returned to the Office.
