Campus Safety and Security

Campus Security Report

San Francisco State University's annual security report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by San Francisco State, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters. You can obtain a copy of this report and the annual fire safety report by contacting the Department of Campus Safety at the following website:

Information concerning SF State's policies, procedures, and facilities for students and others to report criminal actions or other emergencies occurring on campus may also be obtained from the Department of Campus Safety.

Computer Security

Legitimate computing for educational uses is encouraged. However, some may be tempted to abuse this privilege, but not be aware of the legal aspects of computer crime. If SF State computers are illegally used, California Penal Code 502 states that the offender may be found guilty of a felony, which is punishable by a fine not exceeding $10,000, imprisonment for 16, 24, or 36 months, or by both fine and imprisonment. Any student who illegally uses the SF State computer system may be subject to suspension or expulsion from the University.

Computer security is the responsibility of everyone. All users should read the SF State Information Security Program Guide, which covers policies, procedures, proper uses, and misuses of computing systems:

Sexual Violence

SF State does not tolerate acts of sexual violence. All reported instances of sexual violence are investigated and appropriate disciplinary, criminal, and/or legal action is taken, with the consent of the victim. Appropriate support services are made available to students, faculty, or staff who are victims of sexual violence. For more information, please visit:
