Safety and respect on campus

We want to ensure you are part of a safe and secure community, where you feel respected and heard.

If you or someone you know at Macquarie has experienced sexual assault or sexual harassment, you can find information on this page about support services and reporting pathways – both at the University and externally.


You and your friends can prevent sexual assault and harassment by staying alert and speaking up.

Macquarie is also a participant in the Respect. Now. Always. project which seeks to prevent, and improve responses to, acts of sexual harassment and sexual assault experienced by students and staff on campus. For more information on the Respect. Now. Always. project, visit the project page.

24/7 emergency support

You can also request an interpreter. Support services can arrange a free interpreter.
