Security services

Making sure you always feel safe is something we take very seriously at Monash. It’s why we have a range of security services in place across every one of our campuses.

There’s an emergency number you can call if you ever need to, along with emergency help points at every campus so you can reach us if you don’t have a phone. We have a general security number too, where you can get advice, make a report or ask for a security escort. Both numbers are the same on every campus, and they’re listed on the right side of this page.

24/7 Security patrols

We have officers patrolling our campuses on foot, by bike and in cars – day and night, 7 days a week. They’re backed by an experienced management team, with expertise in crime prevention, investigation, surveillance, crisis and traffic management.

24/7 Security control room

Our control room teams monitor the surveillance cameras (which record images and recognise number plates), electronic access points and alarms on our campuses all day, every day.

24/7 Safety escorts

If you ever feel unsafe for any reason, you can call the general security number to ask for a safety escort. A security officer will come to you, and walk with you anywhere on campus.

Security buses

On our larger campuses in Clayton and Caulfield, we have Security Buses to help students get around after dark. They run every 30 minutes from 5:30 pm to midnight, Monday to Friday.

You can download the Clayton Security Bus route  (PDF, 0.23 MB), or use the live Clayton campus tracker to see exactly where the bus is when it's running.

If you’re on the Caulfield campus, you can download the Caulfield Security Bus route (PDF, 0.55 MB), and check the live Caulfield campus tracker.
