Campus Security

Your safety is paramount to us here at UniSA, so security plays a very important role. UniSA’s Campus Security is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Security officers patrol the campuses by day and offer even stronger protection at night. They can provide you with first aid or help in an emergency.

Stay safe: Use a UniSafe escort when moving around the campus at night, and follow our tips for personal safety.

The University's security policy details our commitment to your safety.

In case of emergency

  • Call 000 to contact the state Emergency Services (Police, Fire, Ambulance). In non-emergency situations, you can also contact the Police on 131444.

Call Campus Security

  • Use a security phone: Several locations on all campuses are equipped with emergency wall phones for direct contact with security staff. These are distinguished by a sign overhead (pictured above right). They will automatically dial security.
