What attempts are made by the University to find the rightful owners?

The Unclaimed Property Office is committed to reuniting rightful owners with their unclaimed property.  Pursuant to jurisdictional regulations the Unclaimed Property Office mails letters to property owners informing them of property in their name held by the University.  The University is successful in reuniting a significant amount of owners with their unclaimed property.


Property that remains unclaimed is escheated to the state of the owner’s last known address in accordance with the laws of that jurisdiction. The rightful owner retains his rights to the property in perpetuity and may contact the appropriate jurisdictional agency to file a claim for escheated property at any time.
