Emergency Contact Points
Western Sydney University is committed to providing a safe environment in which to work and study. Emergency contact points provide a 24-hour direct link to a Campus Safety & Security Officer. The points are strategically located on each campus to increase the safety of students, staff and visitors. Below are maps for each campus detailing their locations:
- Bankstown (Milperra) campus (opens in a new window)
- Nirimba (Blacktown) campus (opens in a new window)
- Campbelltown campus (opens in a new window)
- Hawkesbury campus (opens in a new window)
- Parramatta campus (opens in a new window)
- Penrith (Kingswood) campus (opens in a new window)
- Penrith (Werrington South) campus (opens in a new window)
- Penrith (Werrington North) campus (opens in a new window)
When an emergency contact point is activated, the nearest security officer is immediately deployed, while the person who raised the alarm speaks directly with security staff in the control room in full view of CCTV. A back-up system ensures that the emergency contact points provide an uninterrupted link to Campus Safety & Security staff.
The University's CCTV network is a critical component of the overall security program. All video surveillance on our campuses is conducted in accordance with the University's Workplace Surveillance Policy (opens in a new window) and the Workplace Surveillance Act 2005 (opens in a new window).
Loss prevention and lost and found property
Campus Safety & Security Offices also assist with items lost or misplaced on Campus. If you find an item that is not yours on campus, please take it to the Safety and Security Office for retention and return to its rightful owner. Lost property is usually kept for three months, unless it is valuable in which case it will be conveyed to the nearest police station within 24 hours.
If students or staff need to report matters of concern to the police, including lost or stolen property, Campus Safety & Security can assist. Please use this WesternNOW form to report property you have lost on Campus.
Information for International students
Campus Safety & Security provide presentations at information days for prospective new International students. You can find out more about safety while studying in Australia through the NSW Government International Student Safety site (opens in a new window), or the Australian Federation of International Students (opens in a new window).
