Safety and security procedures

As a resident and member of our campus community, it’s important to us that you feel safe and secure at all times. While we have established security measures in place, we also ask that you take responsibility for your own safety and avoid behaviour that may impact the safety of those around you.

Emergency help points, security phones and intercoms

Every campus has emergency help points, security phones and intercoms.

They're easy to find and use – one of our control-room security officers will respond to your call quickly.

Report what you see

Good safety and security also depends on you noticing what's going on around you and reporting serious or unusual incidents.

If you see or hear something out of the ordinary at any time of day or night, call the emergency or general security number noted below.

Emergency and security contact numbers

Everyone has access to our 24/7 security helpline. You can use this number to get in contact with our security safety escorts – they'll respond quickly to your call and are available to walk with you anywhere on campus after dark.

Put the emergency number and the other numbers we've provided on this page into your mobile phone; that way you'll have them with you at all times.

We also have on-campus emergency phones placed throughout our campuses.
