As the third vital industry supporting Australia’s economic development, the education domain and related services are deserved to be emphasized. The domestic university as the major used space of the educational industry is acquiring increasingly government investments. One of the investment aspects is the improvement of safety infrastructure. By providing students and staff a convenient and safe campus experience is an effective approach to produce greater benefits. However, in most Australia universities, the safety issue is still a problem that needs to be enhanced. In this research paper, the Garden City Campus of the Queensland University of Technology is used as the case study. It will be analyzed using the methodologies of observation and survey.
