As a parent, your student's safety on campus is undoubtedly your number
one concern. Statistics show that in comparison to other large urban
college campuses, UCSB is a relatively safe environment. However, as a
community of more than 20,000 individuals, it is not problem-free.
Crimes do occur on campus and in Isla Vista each year. Each individual
in the campus community must be actively responsible for their own
safety. Please encourage your student to be aware of this issue and
alert to their surroundings.
