Security bus service

The University security bus service is provided for the safety and well being of the University community. The Melbourne (Bundoora) campus security unit is committed to the University community being able to traverse the campus with confidence.

During library hours

When the Library is open in the evening, the bus departs every 30 minutes from the east side of the Library (patrons should wait in the Library foyer near the loans desk), commencing 6:00pm until 10:05pm and escorts staff and students to:

  • Academic buildings
  • Car parks
  • Colleges
  • University Lodge
  • La Trobe Melbourne
  • Barnes Way
  • Graduate House
  • Tram stop

Out of hours service

When the Library is closed and at weekends, an escort can be arranged by telephone (03) 9479 2012. Use only this extension so that emergency lines are kept free.

A security escort will leave University Lodge on an hourly basis from nightfall to 5:00am the following morning.

Escorts will not commence until after dark and cease at 5:30am. This service is provided for people who are alone and who feel their safety is at risk.
