Safe Spaces

Find the women and queer rooms on campus. Safe spaces exist across all campuses and are a place for students to relax, socialise and study in a welcoming and supportive environment.

Women’s rooms

Women’s rooms exist across all campuses and are a place for female-identifying and gender non-conforming students to relax, socialise and study in a welcoming and supportive environment. These rooms feature information on women’s health, support services as well as pads, tampons and condoms.

These are autonomous spaces where it is expected individuals utilising them do so in a respectful manner.
