Safer Community

Safer Community is a Deakin wide service which aims to keep all campuses safe. We respond to all reports of behaviour which are concerning, inappropriate or threatening and offer support to all parties involved. If you are worried about someone or something just doesn’t feel quite right, please contact us for support, advice or information.

Student health and wellbeing is our highest priority. We are here to support you via phone on 9244 3734 or email, Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm.
