Safer Community

Safer Community is a central point of enquiry, response and support for concerning, threatening or inappropriate behaviour.

Safer Community fosters a safe environment for staff, students and visitors at Victoria University. We provide support at all stages of responding to complex and sensitive situations.

In 2017, we launched VUSafe, VU's official mobile safety app. The app connects staff and students to campus safety, security and support resources and information.
