The University's role is to help students with a variety of concerns, issues or circumstances that affect their ability to engage with their studies. If you are involved in an incident or are concerned about a student and it is not an emergency, you are encouraged to make a report.
Reports are not reviewed after hours, on weekends, or on public holidays. If students or staff are in immediate danger or require urgent medical attention, the first step is to call emergency services on 000 (112 from mobile phones) or call Griffith University security on 1800 800 707 (extension 7777 from any University phone).
For Emergency Assistance whilst studying or working overseas contact International SOS immediately to report urgent medical, travel or other assistance during the journey by telephoning reverse charge (from overseas) (61) (2) 9372-2468, quote Griffith University’s membership number 12AYCA000069.
