How you can help

Get help in an emergency

We encourage all people to get help in an emergency.

Report an incident after it happens

We take all reports seriously and respond swiftly. We will support you and protect your welfare.

  • Speak to a CSU staff member who will take your report and lodge it for you using CSU’s incident reporting system
  • Call the police on 131 444 or find out what happens when you report to the police

Training for students

In 2018 CSU introduced Playing Right, a two-hour face-to-face training program for students who live on campus at CSU, designed by Residence Life staff. The unique program is designed to prevent sexual assault and sexual harassment by educating students about consent, personal responsibility, being an active bystander and reporting anything that doesn’t seem right, and getting help. In 2018, Playing Right was awarded the Best of Program Award at the Asia Pacific Student Accommodation Association conference.

All CSU students have access to the online Consent Matters training package. This training includes:

  • what consent is
  • recognising unhealthy behaviours
  • calling out examples of inappropriate behaviour
  • what to do if a friend or peer tells you they have experienced sexual assault or harassment.

The training is a requirement for students who work or volunteer for CSU, however all students are encouraged to complete it.
