Campus safety


Feel safe on UQ campuses with our 24-hour security patrols and UniSafe program.

Our campuses are well lit and have security call points in strategic locations. You can call an emergency phone number any hour of the day and a security officer will respond immediately.

Our UniSafe program offers:

  • UniSafe escort service at UQ St Lucia and Gatton where you can ask for someone to accompany you to public transport or your parking spot during darkness
  • preferred pedestrian paths at night
  • safety bus service after 6pm at UQ St Lucia, linking main buildings, colleges, carparks, and public transport stops.

UQ developed UniSafe as a way to keep staff, students and visitors feeling protected on campus. The initiative operates across all campuses and is designed to raise awareness of safety, and maximise your sense of ease and 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.
