I have heard and read online about the 'safety' issues in and around the Berkeley campus.
Want to know if any of u know anything about it?

Thanks for sharing this list. As a UCLA applicant, I have also started to worry about safety issues.

Vanderbilt, Duke and Georgia Tech also make this list. I have spent time at each school. I never felt unsafe. You just have to be smart about when you walk around and where you go. Trouble only finds you if you look for it.

Hey! Thanks for telling us. Good to know.
I don't think anyone will venture around alone at night or anything if they can help it. But the concern is for times when we'll have to stay late at the library and have to get back home, you know, that sorta thing.

You have nothing to worry about in the City of Berkeley, California, USA. UC Berkeley is one of the safest campuses within the UC (University of California) system. The only issue of unsafety you should have is getting caught up in the middle of constant protests that known to be in front of Sproul Hall. Sproul Hall is down the hill on Brancroft Way from Boalt Hall. You will be too occupied with LLM studies to even waste time.

The City of Berkeley is a multicultural hub. However you will be in the San Francisco Bay Area (which Berkeley is one of several cities there) that is known for its multiculturalism. If you choose Berkeley as your destination. You will be thankful for doing so if you are not from the Bay Area nor California.

Seriously, don't let this silly list scare you. UCLA/Westwood and Berkeley are both relatively safe places. Both campuses are very close or integrated into urban areas, so I think that is what might spiking crime rates here (as the quote from the UCLA media relations guy suggests).

Assaults and rapes, of course, are always alarming, but this is unfortunately a danger to be aware of on a lot of university campuses. An earlier user said use common sense. I think that holds true for life in any city or university.

Depends on which side you are talking about.

North side - Very Good
West side (Downtown Berkeley) - Good
South side (Telegraph Ave.) - Fair (Daytime)/ Horrible! (Night)
