Security shuttle and campus escort service
UTS Security provides an after-hours escort service to escort UTS staff and students to UTS buildings, residences and transport hubs. Security staff are also available to escort members of the UTS community during daylight hours in case of injury or specific safety concerns. You can contact UTS Security Control Room anytime by calling: 9514 1192.
UTS Students and Staff can also use the regular Security Shuttle Bus Service. This service runs seven nights a week throughout the year (except during the campus shutdown period), transporting students and staff around the campus and to UTS residences.
It’s vital to adjust the ergonomic set-up of your computer workstation so you can work comfortably and safely. All students should ensure that they adjust their equipment to suit their needs. Regular, short stretch breaks are important ways of looking after your body at work.
