Click below to see tables showing offenses reported in the last 3 years. Statistics reflect reportable activity on campus property and in particular adjacent locations. UCPD reports for the Clery-required areas of Campus, Housing, Noncampus and Public, but UCPD also reports statistics for an inclusive area we call "The Box," the several urban blocks surrounding the main campus.
If you are concerned about the well-being of any residential student or have reason to believe that a student might be missing, you should contact UCPD immediately. UCPD works closely with the Residential Student Service Programs (RSSP), International House, and the Berkeley Student Cooperative housing authorities and will begin its investigation immediately if a resident is suspected to be missing. Students living in any of these residential facilities may designate a contact person to be notified in case the student is determined to be missing.
Public Law 110-315 states that all Title IV eligible institutions participating in any Title IV program and that maintain on-campus student housing facilities must publish an Annual Fire Safety Report, maintain a fire log, and report fire statistics to the Secretary of Educa- tion. A printed copy can be obtained by contacting EH&S at (510) 642-5995 or can be downloaded at http://ehs.berkeley.edu/fp/328-fire-safety-reports.html
Links to Fire Safety Pages for Your Campus Residence
Take some time to go over the fire and life safety rules and guidelines for these kinds of residences at the following links:
Residential Student Services Program (RSSP)
Messy buildings are likely to have multiple fire hazards, so work with your neighbors to keep things in clean and orderly condition.
- Extension cords are fire hazards and should only be used temporarily. Use a power strip with circuit breaker protection if you must plug many devices into one outlet.
The welfare of those students who reside in “on-campus student housing facilities”* is of utmost importance to UC Berkeley. UCPD works closely with RSSP, International House, and the Berkeley Student Cooperative (with regards to Cloyne Court, The Convent, Fenwick-Weavers, and Rochdale Village) to respond without delay should any of these housing authorities notify us that a residential student is missing.
* Campus property: (i) Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s educational purposes, including residence halls; and (ii) Any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the area identified in paragraph (i) of this definition, that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).
Under the Clery Act, the Berkeley campus must annually distribute statistics on the reported occurrences of the following offenses:
- Aggravated assault
- Sex offenses: forcible (rape, sodomy, rape with a foreign object, and forcible fondling [sexual battery])
- Sex offenses: non-forcible (incest and statutory rape)
- Motor vehicle theft
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act--known as the Clery Act--is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C Section 1092(f) in 1990. This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to annually compile and publish the reported instances of criminal activity on their campuses, along with campus safety policies and procedures, and to make a log of all daily police activity and deliver timely warnings of campus threats throughout the year.
The residence halls are locked 24 hours a day, with entry controlled by a mechanical and/or card key system. A UCPD Residential Security Sergeant supervises all security activity in UC residence halls, communicating on a daily basis with Residential Directors. CSOs (UCPD student employees) patrol the residence halls during the evening hours, while Residential Student Service Programs (RSSP) employs student residents both as Security Coordinators, who coordinate safety and security education events, and as Security Monitors, who observe and track access of residents and guests to the halls.
