Campus wide improvements

We are constantly reviewing and upgrading security on campus. Some of the steps we’ve taken to improve security on our Bruce campus include:

  • A more comprehensive CCTV network across the University, with a 24/7 control room in operation to complement a team of security officers who patrol campus around the clock.
  • A significant improvement in lighting such as floodlighting and lux-level sensor lighting installed across campus, leading to a 30 percent increase in lit areas.
  • Clearing of garden beds and lifting of tree canopies to improve line of sight for people, cameras and light throughout campus.
  • Installation of safe walking tracks to traverse from car parks to concrete walking paths and buildings.
