Security services

Making sure you always feel safe is something we take very seriously at Monash. It’s why we have a range of security services in place across every one of our campuses.

There’s an emergency number you can call if you ever need to, along with emergency help points at every campus so you can reach us if you don’t have a phone. We have a general security number too, where you can get advice, make a report or ask for a security escort. Both numbers are the same on every campus, and they’re listed on the right side of this page.

24/7 Security patrols

We have officers patrolling our campuses on foot, by bike and in cars – day and night, 7 days a week. They’re backed by an experienced management team, with expertise in crime prevention, investigation, surveillance, crisis and traffic management.

24/7 Security control room

Our control room teams monitor the surveillance cameras (which record images and recognise number plates), electronic access points and alarms on our campuses all day, every day.

24/7 Safety escorts

If you ever feel unsafe getting around campus, security officers are available to escort you to your car, public transport, taxi pick-up points, colleges or other locations on or in the near vicinity of the campus. This free 24 hour service is available to all students and staff from anywhere on campus. If you intend to work late at night and know you will need assistance, try to book in advance to avoid delays. If your escort is delayed for any reason, the Security Office will contact you.
