The Governance and Administration Statute 2012 provides that a person must comply with conditions imposed on their presence on campus and that the University and persons authorised by the University may remove people from University premises. Persons authorised by the University include security contractors.
Staff and students are permitted to access relevant areas of University premises in order to fulfil their duties or academic requirements or for other lawful and legitimate purposes.
Members of the public are also permitted to enter parts of University premises that common sense would recognise as “public places”. Members of the public may also be allowed to access those University premises not defined as public places to undertake work as contractors, attend functions, partake in recreational or other activities or use the premises for events under an arrangement with the University.
The University engages and authorises security staff and contracted security personnel to provide staff and students with a safe and secure environment in which to study, work and live.
The University also appoints a University Warden to manage emergency responses on campus.
