Security Escorts
Deakin Security Services provides a free 24/7 service and can be booked by contacting Security by phone or by using the Help button on the SafeZone app.
We recommended that you call Security at least 10 minutes prior to the requested time. Deakin Security recommends you try to avoid walking alone on campus at night. Parking your vehicle close to the centre of campus will help. Parking regulations in general parking zones are relaxed from 4.30 pm onwards.
