Night Safety Tips

The UC Berkeley campus is situated in an urban environment, and though campus areas are relatively safe, the campus is not immune to crime. Your best defense is to adopt an attitude of awareness and to take precautions when you must walk alone.

First and foremost, we encourage you to utilize the Night Safety Shuttle and/or BearWALK Nighttime Escort Service, but we know there will be times when you cannot. In those cases, follow these guidelines

Bike Licensing & Registration

Per law, bicycles must possess a license (a UCPD sticker affixed to your bicycle).  Additionally, to use some secure bicycle parking areas on campus and at residence halls, you must have a license (UCPD sticker) on your bicycle.

UCPD offers bike licensing services for free. You will need to bring your bicycle to 1 Sproul Hall between 6pm to 9pm, Monday-Friday

Contact UCPD if you have questions.

Bicycle Theft

Bicycle theft has become a tremendous problem on college campuses, and the Berkeley campus is no exception. Bicycles and bicycle parts, including seats and "quick release" wheels, are in big demand, and thieves are well-equipped and well-organized.

Is UCPD the custodian of all campus Lost and Found items?

If I've lost something on campus, where can I go to try to find it?

Is there another Lost & Found on campus?

UCPD (University of California Police Department) is the central repository for lost and found on the Berkeley Campus. Buildings throughout campus will sometimes maintain their own collection of non-valuable lost & found items such as books or clothing, but should turn over anything of value to UCPD on a weekly basis.
