"I love what you've, um, neglected to do with the place. "
Joyce Summers about the Crypt[src]

The interior of Spike's crypt.

Spike's Crypt is the term used to describe a particular crypt in the Sunnydale Cemetery that Spike made his home circa 2000-2002.

In 2000, after Spike moved out of Xander's basement, he moved into a crypt in one of Sunnydale's many cemeteries. A hole in the crypt floor leads into an underground cavern, which is part of Sunnydale's extensive network of tunnels, and which contains what is apparently Spike's bedroom and a small shrine dedicated to Buffy (composed of many pictures and objects that Spike had pilfered from her home); in the case of the latter, however, Buffy indirectly destroyed it in "Crush" by punching Spike with enough force to send him flying into it.

Spike was seen going round a cemetery, looking for a new place in "A New Man". In "The I in Team", when the interior of the crypt is first shown, it is mostly empty, and Spike is seen sleeping on a "bed" composing of a stone slab and a ratty old blanket; however, Spike soon turns it into a comfortable home, complete with a recliner, cable TV, and food storage. A lower level of the crypt is shown in "As You Were" where Riley discovered Suvolte demon's eggs.

When Spike left for Africa to get his soul, he left Clem in possession of his crypt. It is last seen in "Two to Go" -- Spike was not seen to return to the crypt after his return to Sunnydale in Season Seven, instead staying first in the basement of the new Sunnydale High and then at Buffy's house, and it is not known whether Clem continued to live there until his departure.

It was presumably destroyed along with the rest of Sunnydale following the Battle at the Hellmouth.
