Responsibility

We as a club believe it's important to be mindful of and have a duty to our fellow people at the university and in the community.

As such this will be one of the more serious pages on our website, we're also considering writing up a document outlining our policies

General Resources

Emergencies

The University maintains a list of emergency phone numbers: www.student.uwa.edu.au/international/emergency-contact (it's not a bad idea to save a bunch of these numbers in your phone)

Non Emergencies

If you have left property in a room you can request that UWA security come open the door for you if it's locked, call them on their non emergency number: 08 6488 3020

Mental health

It's no secret university can be incredibly stressful. Luckily there are people to help. Below are some links with some resources which may be of use.

There also exists this document which the guild has created titled: Guild Welfare: Mental Health Directory which contains some additional services.
