Safety and security
Your safety isn’t something you should have to worry about while you’re at university. And at Monash, you won’t need to. Our campuses are fitted out with the latest CCTV, electronic building access, and alarm technology. And our security teams work around the clock to protect our staff, students and visitors. But chances are, you’ll feel so safe you won’t even notice them in the first place.
Our security teams
We have officers patrolling our campuses on foot, by bike and in cars – day and night. They’re backed by an experienced management team with expertise in crime prevention, investigation, surveillance, crisis and traffic management.
Other safety and security services include campus security escorts (upon request), and night time security buses to help students get around our larger campuses after dark.
If you ever feel unsafe at Monash
For yourself, or for someone else, you can always call the Monash emergency number – it’s the same for every campus. We have a general security number too, where you can report anything suspicious, or just ask for some security advice. They’re both listed down the right side of this page.
You’re welcome to visit or call your campus security team directly as well, you’ll find their location and contact details here.
You’re part of a safe community
So no matter what you’re struggling with, there’s always someone to support you. If you’re feeling stressed or down, there are counselling services that can help you cope. And if you’re ever feeling threatened or concerned by someone’s behaviour, you can contact our Safer Community Unit.
