ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO
Here is an opportunity to let us know what campus lighting concerns you have.
The Annual Lighting Survey Walks will take place during December and early January. If you are aware of any areas of concern, please feel free to email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that all concerns include specific information about the location. The walks only address exterior concerns. We review all submitted comments during the walks.
Throughout the year, you may call (858) 534-2930 (Facilities Management Help Desk) to give your lighting and facilities concerns. In addition, you can submit an online work request through Facilities Management website.
For over 20 years, UCSD Police Department (http://police.ucsd.edu) in conjunction with the Sexual Assault & Violence Prevention Resource Center (http://sarc.ucsd.edu) have conducted the Annual Lighting Survey Walks across campus. We actually walk the entire campus reviewing for poorly lit areas, safety hazards and other potential concerns. The Lighting Survey Walks are just one component of the multiple safety efforts implemented on campus every year.
Recommendations for improvement can range from new lighting fixtures to cutting/trimming trees and shrubs. As the campus has grown, so have our walks. We now have four separate walks, targeting specific areas:
1) Mesa, One Miramar and Coast housing,
Representatives from the following departments participate in the walks: Police Department, Facilities Management, Transportation Services, Auxiliary and Plant Services, Residential Life, EH&S, Housing Dining Hospitality, Campus Planning, Libraries, and SARC.
