Help point emergency phones

There are a number of help point emergency phones located across UWA campuses that can be used if you are ever concerned about your safety or someone else’s. These ‘help points’ provide a direct link to our Security services – no dialling required.

How do I activate a help point?


Hold your finger down on the red button until you are connected to Security services.
