VU security regularly patrol buildings and car parks, both on and off-campus. They are here to help you.
You can request a security escort on campus. Simply phone the Security Operations Centre on your campus on +61 3 9919 4999.
Security escorts provide students and staff:
- with a guard to walk with you to other buildings on campus
- assistance walking from your office or study area to your vehicle (if parked in a VU car park).
Please note that there is not a dedicated guard for this service. During busy times, you may experience a short wait before they can assist you.
Crime prevention & investigation
We maintain a close relationship with the police, other emergency services and offer a number of crime prevention strategies to ensure that Victoria University remains a safe place to study and work.
If you are leaving the campus after business hours, consider taking the St Albans or Footscray Park/Footscray Nicholson shuttle bus services to the local train station.
There are car parks at most campuses, for which you'll need to buy a ticket. The Road Safety Act (1986) and all associated regulations and amendments is enforced in University car parks so please observe signs to avoid fines.
