Crime Reporting

Report a Crime

If you are the victim of a crime, the witness to a crime or suspect a crime has been committed, contact Campus Safety immediately at:

Emergency Line: (408) 554-4444

Campus Safety Main Office: (408) 554-4441

Alternatively, you can reach Campus Safety through any of the Emergency Phone located throughout campus.  This secured line provides direct contact to our Safety Officers, staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The sooner you call, the more likely Campus Safety can apprehend the suspect.  For further suggestions on what should be done during an emergency, please see the University's Emergency Procedures.

Sexual and Gender Based Misconduct Policy

Santa Clara University upholds a zero tolerance policy for sexual and gender-based misconduct and does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs.  When an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator's attention and a respondent is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be used to reasonably ensure that such actions are never repeated.
