Security services

The University of Sydney is committed to ensuring your safety on campus. We want you to have the best possible experience during your studies here.

To ensure your own personal safety, firstly familiarise yourself with our student safety tips, which are available in eight languages.

We also run a number of other services to maintain a safe campus, during your commute to and from uni, including regular patrols and shuttle bus services to and from Redfern train station.
