Keeping you safe on campus

Posted 22 February 2017

As Semester 1 for 2017 kicks off, it's a great time to find out about the essential services Security & Traffic Management provide on campus to help keep you safe.

  • StaySafe@UNSW app – the Security app provides you with direct access to a number of Security Services. This app also features a flashlight and alarm, and access to emergency procedures. Download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play.
  • Night shuttle bus – this free service operates Monday – Friday 7.00pm to 11.30pm (excluding public holidays) around the Kensington and Randwick campuses and surrounding streets. You can track the location of the night shuttle bus on the StaySafe@UNSW app.  
  • Safety escorts – you can request a Security escort to get across campus safely. A security officer will accompany you from your location on campus to car parks, bus stops and taxi ranks. This is a free service, available after hours, all year round. Call 9385 6000 to request or visit one of the Help Points located on campus to request an escort.

  • Help Pointshelp points are strategically located across the campus to help ensure your safety. Pressing the red button will connect you directly to Security & Traffic Management.

  • Coffee with a Cop – a partnership with NSW Police, join your fellow students and Local Police Officers for a free coffee and conversation. It's a chance to ask questions, voice concerns and get to know the officers in your neighbourhood!

    UNSW Alert SMS -  if a major incident occurs on campus - a building fire, for example - the UNSW Major Incident Response Team will alert you via the UNSW Alert SMS. To be sure you receive these alerts, you must make sure your mobile phone details are up to date in myUNSW. It only takes a minute to update and verify your details to make sure you know exactly what to do in an emergency on campus.

And for a bit of fun... check out the important role our Security Officers play on campus in our all-star action movie starring Campus Security!
