Keep an eye on your valuables this exam period

With the exam period commencing, Security and Traffic Management would like to remind all students to keep an eye on your valuables. Thieves are watching and only need a second to swipe your belongings.

Laptop, tablet and mobile phone theft are some of the most reported crimes at UNSW. Most are stolen when left unattended, even for a moment.

If you’re planning on studying and staying on campus after dark, take advantage of the number of security services available to keep you safe on campus:

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.
