When any property (either Institute property or personal property) is believed to have been stolen an Incident Report must be filed with Facilities Management/Security. The report must be filed by the property owner. In the case of Institute property, the report should be filed by the school/department in which the property was located. A copy of the report will be sent to the Vice President for Administration.
2. Insurance coverage
- Student, faculty or staff property: Student property in the housing areas (Chouinard or Ahmanson Hall) is NOT covered by the Institute's insurance policy. Students or their parents should claim losses under their homeowner's or renter's policy. CalArts does not have property insurance for student possessions, and CalArts accepts no responsibility for any personal possessions or property of students. The Institute's property insurance policy has a deductible clause. Any claims paid will be net of the deductible amount. In order to file an insurance claim the property owner must have filed a stolen property report with the City of Santa Clarita's law enforcement agency (Sheriff's Department). A copy of this report must be furnished to the Facilities Management Office. The Facilities Management Office will determine if an insurance claim will be filed.
- Institute property: The Institute's policy has a deductible clause. A report of the stolen property must be filed with the City of Santa Clarita's law enforcement agency (Sheriff's Department) and accompany any insurance claim. The Facilities Management Office will determine if an insurance claim will be filed.
The Campus Safety office has a locker which contains lost and found property. Property found should be turned in to this office.
