Campus-wide improvements

At our Bruce campus, we are committed to constantly reviewing and upgrading our security measures. To enhance security on campus, we have implemented several measures such as

  • A more comprehensive CCTV network with a 24/7 control room to complement our dedicated team of security officers who patrol campus around the clock.
  • We have also significantly improved the lighting across campus, with floodlighting and lux-level sensor lighting installed to increase lit areas by 30 percent.
  • To improve line of sight for people, cameras and light throughout campus, we have cleared garden beds and lifted tree canopies.
  • Additionally, we have installed safe walking tracks to allow easy traversal from car parks to concrete walking paths and buildings.

These measures are part of our ongoing efforts to create a safe and secure environment for our students, staff, and visitors.
