Women's Safety

You always have the right to be safe from any form of sexual harassment, sexual assault or domestic abuse - whether you're on campus, online or at home.  If you've been subjected to or have experienced abuse, remember: it is never your fault and there is support available both at UniSA and externally. 

To find out more, please access the Women's Safety Webinar hosted by the University on 11 September 2020, in partnership with Women's Safety Services SA and the Office for Women in South Australia.
