Defining the Campus

Colleges and universities must adhere to safety regulations under the guidelines of the Clery Act. The 2005 Handbook for Campus Crime Reporting clearly defines what areas, buildings, facilities, grounds and property are considered a part of the overall campus boundaries. Academic institutions are responsible for making sure that these areas are relatively safe and crime-free for students, employees and visitors. On some occasions it will be necessary for school safety administrators to use their best judgment in determining whether or not a location should be consider a part of their campus. Most of the time however, it should be fairly easy to figure out what is or is not a part of a college or universities grounds.
