Keeping you safe on campus

Posted 19 July 2017

Welcome back! As you head into Semester 2, it's a great time to find out about the essential services Security & Traffic Management provide on campus to help keep you safe.

  • Download the StaySafe@UNSW app– the Security app provides you with direct access to a number of security services to help keep you safe. This app also features a flashlight and alarm, security tips and access to emergency procedures. Download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play.
  • Catch the night shuttle bus– this free service operates Monday – Friday 6.30pm 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.
  • Request a safety escort– UNSW Security is on call to accompany you from your location on campus to car parks, bus stops and taxi ranks. This is a free service. Safety escorts are 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.
  • Locate a help point– help points are strategically located across the campus to help ensure your safety. Pressing the red button will connect you directly to Security & Traffic Management.
  • Keep valuable secure - laptop, tablet and mobile phone theft are some of the most reported crimes at UNSW. Most are stolen when left unattended, even for a brief moment. Make sure you keep an eye on your valuables.
  • Gate 2 Security Office - the Security Office located at Gate 2 on High Street is open 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. It is a safe and handy location to use as a meeting point or to wait for a taxi pick up at night.
  • Register for 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.
