CAMPUS CRIME STATISTICS (CLERY ACT)

The University is committed to providing a safe and secure campus environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. In accordance with the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act” (Clery Act), UCSB publishes an Annual Security Report to provide information regarding campus safety and security policies, crime statistics, and resources to current and prospective students and employees.  

This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning crimes reported to Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property, and on public property adjacent to and accessible from campus. The report also includes campus policies concerning crime prevention, crime reporting, alcohol and drug use, sexual and interpersonal violence, student discipline, and other matters. To access the Annual Security Report, visit www.police.ucsb.edu/asr. A copy of this report may also be requested by contacting the UCSB Police Department (call 805-893-3446 or visit 574 Public Safety Bldg., Santa Barbara, CA 93106 during business hours).

Campus safety is a collaborative effort that involves the entire community. The University encourages victims, witnesses, and community members who are made aware of crimes to report all incidents to the UCSB Police Department (805-893-3446). Victims can also report to a CSA—an official of the institution with significant responsibility for student and campus activities—and request that the CSA maintain the victim’s anonymity when forwarding the report to campus Police. To learn more about the Clery Act and CSA responsibilities, please visit www.police.ucsb.edu/clery-act.  

The University issues “timely warnings” regarding serious crimes if they are deemed to be a continuous threat to the campus community. “Emergency notifications” have a wider focus than the timely warning and are issued for any significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the campus community. Students, staff, and faculty can register and opt-in for these alerts at alert.ucsb.edu.
