Campus safety


Feel confident on campus with our 24-hour security patrols and safety program.

Each of our three campuses is well lit and has security call points in strategic locations. You can call an emergency phone number any hour of the day or night, and UQ Security will respond immediately.

The safety program includes:

  • An escort service at St Lucia and Gatton. Someone can accompany you to public transport or to your parking space during darkness.
  • There are preferred pedestrian paths at night.
  • There is a safety bus service after 6pm at St Lucia, which links main buildings, colleges, carparks, and public transport stops.

UQ developed the safety program as a way to improve safety for staff, students and visitors on campus. The initiative operates across all campuses and is designed to raise awareness of safety, and maximise your sense of security.

This, combined with Brisbane being one of the safest and most family-friendly cities in Australia – with one of the lowest crime rates in the world – means you can focus on your studies and enjoy everything UQ has to offer.
