Today, at approximately noon, campus community members and non-affiliate individuals arrived on campus and set up several tents on the grass adjacent to Library Walk. This activity is in violation of campus policy, which prohibits unauthorized encampments.

We are encouraged that the protest activities on our campus have been peaceful to this point – and reiterate the importance of adhering to our campus Principles of Community. Campus police and security teams are onsite to ensure campus safety and continuity of campus operations.

UC San Diego fully supports the right to peacefully protest and express views on campus; however, we are also fully committed to protecting the physical safety of all individuals in our community and upholding the rights of all students, faculty and staff to continue to work, study and carry out the academic mission of the university without undue disruption.

Our focus remains squarely on maintaining a safe campus environment free from discrimination and harassment and continuing the operation of our academic mission without disruption. We implore all campus community members to treat each other with dignity and respect.

We remind all students, faculty and staff that sanctions for violating university policy and/or the law can include interim suspension, suspension, dismissal or legal action. We will provide further updates as they become available.
