UNSW has been made aware of a threat to the safety of staff and students on the Kensington campus.

We are treating this incident seriously and have been liaising with the NSW Police through the anti-terrorism and security group and Local Area Command.

Police are advising this is a general, not a specific or direct threat.

The campus has not been evacuated at this stage and classes are continuing as normal.

Those who would prefer to leave campus will not be penalised.

UNSW will update staff and students when more information comes to hand.
