Emergency Help

Have you been sexually assaulted?

Are you safe?

If you feel you are still at risk or think that others may be at risk:


Call Campus Security

  • Call 1800 500 911 (24-hours, free call)
  • Call 88888 from internal University telephones
  • Use a security phone: Several locations on all campuses are equipped with emergency wall phones for direct contact with security staff. These are distinguished by a sign overhead and will automatically dial security.


  • Call 000 to contact the state Emergency Services (Police, Fire, and Ambulance). 
  • In non-emergency situations, you can also contact the Police on 131 444.

Travelling Overseas

UniSA has partnered with International SOS to offer our staff and students medical, safety and security advice, referrals, emotional support and routine & emergency assistance when travelling or living abroad. 

Do you need urgent medical help?

If you are not at further risk…

  • Find somewhere safe and warm as you may be in shock. If you can, phone a family member or a friend to come to you. 
  • Consider contacting Yarrow Place, who provide a free 24 Hour Crisis response Service for anyone over the age of 16 who has been sexually assaulted. If you live in a country area, this service is offered by Country Health SA at your general hospital. Contact your local police for further details. 
  • If possible, keep any used condom or bedding in a clean paper bag if possible as paper bags are better for preserving forensic evidence.
