More Information:

For over 20 years, UCSD Police Department ( in conjunction with CARE at the Sexual Assault Resource Center ( have conducted the Annual Lighting Survey Walks across campus. We actually walk the entire campus reviewing for safety hazards and other potential concerns. The Lighting Review 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, 2) Scripps Institute of Oceanography, 3) Residential housing on Main campus, and 4) Main campus, including the School of Medicine and Pharmacy.

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 CARE@SARC.
