The UF Campus Crime Project provides an interactive map of the University of Florida, displaying the last 90 days of crimes that have occurred on campus, along with any available court records.
Users can explore the map by specific types of crimes, using the sidebar filter feature, and by a specific time period, using the top-right map widget. Users can also search and/or download a table of all UF crimes reported by the university police department, dating back to 2016.
The project was created in 2023 by two undergraduate students, Isabella Douglas and Zachary Carnell of the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications, on their own in response to what they perceived as the growing need for transparency between the university and its students and faculty. With the campus crime map, users can easily stay informed about the safety and security of their campus.
This website is not the official UF Crime Log created under the Clery Act, though some of this website’s data are based on the underlying official data. Refer to the disclaimer section for further explanation.
This website also uses a simple, responsive, MIT licensed and open source template called Bootleaf as a foundation for the basic functionality.

This website is not the official UF Crime Log created under the Clery Act. It is not affiliated with the University of Florida, its College of Journalism & Communications, nor Fresh Take Florida. It is an independent project created by students.
The information presented on this website is collected from the official UF Crime Log, which presents data that are archived but not updated after 60 days. UF is not required to update crime records after 60 days nor the information presented on this website. Thus, this website may not reflect changes in the disposition of the cases presented. Furthermore, the information displayed on this website is not necessarily related to the information that the University provides to the Department of Education in support of its obligations under the Clery Act.
Also note that the map markers placed on the UF Police Department include incidents that have occurred at that location and/or incidents with locations not yet disclosed. And though recent crime data and map markers are regularly updated on this website, the underlying map itself may include areas that are not fully up-to-date.
Any incidents without a reported location (placed at UFPD by default)
