Safety and security

At Monash we do everything we can to make sure all students are able to grow and foster new opportunities while they learn. We therefore strive to provide a friendly, safe and supportive environment.

How Monash creates a safe community

Connecting with your community is important for safety and wellbeing. Monash has a number of services and programs to help you connect with your campus community:

Security services

Every Monash campus has a security office that is staffed 24 hours a day. Members of the security team are friendly and always ready to provide help and safety advice. They are also happy to escort you anywhere on campus at any time of the day or night.

For more information, visit Monash campus security. You can also call them on +61 3 9902 7777.

Safer Community Unit

Our Safer Community Unit provides specialist information, advice and support in managing inappropriate concerning and threatening behaviours impacting our campus community. The Respectful Community Initiative aims at preventing interpersonal and sexual violence. Staff and students can call the Safer Community Unit on +61 3 9905 1599. You can email safercommunity@monash.edu or visit the Safer Community Unit website.

Monash counselling services

Monash offers a very wide range of counselling and mental-health services for students. Whether you're worried about personal, study or work concerns, mental health, or need some advice on how to support someone else, our counselling services are available.

You can find out about them on the counselling services website.

Links with Victoria Police

Monash works closely with Victoria Police to make your campus more secure.

Victoria Police members regularly visit Monash to talk with students about safety. This is an opportunity to ask questions and learn about safety on and off campus. A Victoria Police officer is also located at Monash Connect at the Clayton campus, one day per week.
