Clery Geography Maps

As part of the HUPD’s mission to maintain a safe and secure campus environment by providing quality policing in partnership with the community, the Department has developed Clery geography maps to aid the campus community in better understanding Harvard’s Clery geography and the criminal statistics published in HUPD’s Annual Security Report, entitled “Playing it Safe”.

Clery geography maps are a useful tool for identifying buildings and property that make up Harvard’s Clery Act geography, as well as distinguishing the patrol jurisdiction of our police agency. Additionally, campus maps help illustrate to students, faculty, staff, and visitors where reported incidents occurred.

Below, please find Clery geography maps for each of the University’s seven campuses;

Each map identifies several different types of Harvard affiliated properties; including, but not limited to, on-campus owned/leased buildings and residences, non-campus owned/leased buildings and residences, recognized student organizations, Harvard owned streets, and non-Clery property. The maps present an accurate picture of Harvard’s owned/leased property, and will be updated as necessary.

In addition to the Clery geography maps availability online, the maps will also be published in HUPD’s 2021 Annual Security Report.

Under the Clery Act, “campus”, “non-campus”, and “public property” are defined as follows:

  • Campus - Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution's educational purposes, including residence halls.
  • Non-campus building or property - (1) Any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution; or (2) Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct support of, or in relation to, the institution's educational purposes, is frequently used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution.
  • Public property - All public property, including thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities, that is within the campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

Under the Clery Act, the criteria for a separate campus are as follows:

  • Your institution owns or controls the site;
  • It is not reasonably contiguous with the main campus;
  • It has an organized program of study; and
  • There is at least one administrative person on site acting in an administrative capacity.
