Safety at La Trobe
We want to make sure all our students are safe and secure while studying with us. That’s why we offer a range of on-campus safety services and dedicated security. Here are some ways we are keeping you safe during your studies with us.
At La Trobe, we take safety seriously for all our international students studying and living with us.
Our on-campus accommodation services offer secured access and 24-7 security, so students can settle comfortably into their new home.
We also offer a special after-hours telephone hotline for international students at La Trobe University and a 24-hour emergency hotline.
The University also offers a range of on-campus facilities, such as an Indoor Sports Facility and shops to ensure students can access dedicated services without travelling far from campus.
Through the Uni-Safe service, our dedicated security officers are available to escort students to their campus building, car pack, on-campus accommodation and local public transport.
Students can request a pick-up from anywhere on campus and be dropped off anywhere on campus. Security officers typically take 5 to 10 minutes to arrive but may take up to 15 to 30 minutes during peak times.
