There have been two attacks recently on the Callaghan campus. For their personal safety, everyone on campus is urged to observe the following:
- Put the Security emergency number in your phone - 4921 5888
- After dark, a shuttle bus and security escorts are available by calling 0407 951 470 to arrange pick up
- If you choose not to call Security for an escort after dark, please walk in a group of at least four people and keep to the main pathways
- Do not use isolated car parks, such as number 15, after dark. If you are going to be on campus late, please move your car closer to where you will need it.
