Campus StaySafe

Introducing a custom version of the DefenCall app especially suited for schools.

The first version of this has been produced for University of California at Berkeley.  Berkeley Stay Safe was sponsored by the Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC) for its Berkeley chapter and is provided by ASUC free of charge to the Berkeley community. In addition to the emergency notification button and location service, the Campus Stay Safe app contains localized safety information, which has been selected by the ASUC and UC Police Department as especially pertinent to their location, campus community and existing safety services.

Easy Download and Signup :
1) Using the iPhone or Android smartphone on which you want to install the app, just send a text containing “UCBERK” in the message to short code 32075, and

2) you will receive a response with a link where you can enter your name and email address. Click [SUBMIT], and you are done.

3) Remember to save the page showing the big red button as a bookmark to your home screen.

We invite anyone who is not a member of the University of California at Berkeley community to give it a look - but keep in mind that all the notifications, links and phone numbers are specifically set up for Berkeley.  Additionally, since this app is intended for members of that community (students, faculty, administration and staff) we reserve the right to deny service to anyone who cannot provide a working email address.

If you are interested in having a version of Campus Stay Safe for your campus, please email us at, and we will start the conversation.
