Safer Community

The Safer Community program is your one-stop shop for all student welfare support and campus security services.

Speak up. Save lives.

We encourage students and staff to play a significant part in campus safety by looking out for one another.

  • Do you feel lost, lonely, hopeless, or have thoughts about hurting yourself or others?
  • Are you worried about the safety or wellbeing of someone you know?
  • Have you been bullied, harassed, or are you receiving threats or unwanted attention?
  • Are you confused or unsure about what to do about your problems?

Safer Community offers:

  • a safe space to voice your concerns about your, and your peers', safety and wellbeing
  • personalised student support, safety advice, and referrals for victims of crime, violence, sexual assault, harassment, and bullying
  • ways to manage behaviours that are worrying you (e.g. how to tell someone to ‘please stop and go away!’).
