Keep an eye on your valuables this examination period!

With the exam period, 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 brief 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:

Night shuttle bus 

The night shuttle bus is a free service operating Monday to Friday 6.30-11.30pm (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.

Safety escorts

UNSW Security is on call to accompany you from your location on campus to car parks, bus stops and taxi ranks. This service is free. 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.

Help points

Help points are strategically located across campus (PDF map) to help ensure your safety. Pressing the red button will connect you directly to UNSW Security.

StaySafe@UNSW app

The StaySafe@UNSW security app provides you with direct access to a number of security services. 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.

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.

Need to contact Security?

The security office is located at Gate 2 on High St and 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 pickup at night.

Stay safe and good luck with your exams!
