Report a personal safety incident/concern


For immediate assistance on campus, do not complete this form. 

Depending on the nature of the incident/concern, you are recommended to contact one of the following services:
UWA Security: (+61 8) 6488 2222
Police: 131 444
Police Sex Assault Squad: (+61 8) 9428 1600

Reports submitted through this form are received by UWA Security's on-duty Job Control Officer who will assess the report to determine what action needs to be taken.  Reports are taken seriously, and once received, constitute an official record of the University and assist the University to fulfill its duty of care obligations.

At times, information from reports will be shared with other key staff of the University to ensure a coordinated response to high-risk matters. 

Unless necessary, highly personal information contained in a report will not be released.  Despite this, individuals may prefer to provide essential information only in the form below and provide a more detailed statement in-person later. 

Where an individual has a court-issued restraining order, they are encouraged to provide a copy to UWA Security to ensure their safety on campus.

In addition to completing this form, individuals may choose to access external and/or on-campus support services or lodge a complaint with UWA’s Complaint Resolution Unit.
