Non-emergency contact

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. Security Services is in the Student Life and Wellbeing directorate.
