Available Services During Closure
The Information Desk will remain closed during the Quiet Period. We will open on September 17.
Despite our closure during this time, we know that for some the use of Metro Transit may be essential. Below are links to forms that have been set up to provide reimbursement for qualified purchases or facilitate the purchase of a College Pass.

We know this is an invaluable tool for some students. To purchase a College Pass during the Quiet Period, please email: email@example.com. We will work with you to set up an appointment.

Lost an Item? Check with the Information Desk!
- Some buildings have informal lost and found areas and that’s a good place to start looking.
- Eventually those informal lost and found areas bring items to the Information Desk.
- Tag items with your name, we’ll try finding you through the Macalester Directory should it get turned in.
We only accept perishable items such as flowers, cakes, cookies, etc. A few things to note:
- Please be sure to tell your baker or florist to clearly indicate the name of the Macalester student/staff/faculty that the item is for. We’ll send them an email so they can pick it up.
- We only reach out via email using the Macalester Directory so they must be current faculty/staff/student.
- These items are perishable, so at maximum, we’ll hold onto them for (1) week. We do our best to send multiple emails.
