Reporting an incident

If you're feeling unsafe our security team offers a free escort service after hours.
This means you can request a security officer to walk with you to your car, the train station or another part of campus.
The Swinburne campus is a reasonably safe environment, but we encourage you to be alert and aware of your surroundings: keep valuables with you at all times and walk in well-lit areas in pairs or groups if possible.
