Security

Security Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, coordinated through the Security Centre on Campus West.

We are the first response for everyone on campus. All our officers are first aid trained and part of the Mental Health First Contact network. We provide security advice, facilities management and aid the emergency services on campus.

24/7 assistance

Get help on campus with a simple tap on your phone by installing the SafeZone app.

  • Support overseas - use SafeZone wherever you are in the world - once you activate the Emergency Call, we will attempt to call you back to assess the situation and will arrange departmental assistance and support as necessary. Find out more about international emergencies.
