Please click on the map (bottom of page, right) in order to enlarge it for an overview of the Wollongong Campus assembly areas.
The table at the bottom of this page lists the individual assembly areas for each building. Click on each assembly area for the corresponding individualised map.
In order to ensure the safety of employees and students, it is required that lecturers orientate students to the fire evacuation procedures for the teaching areas being utilised for each class. You are required to do this at the commencement of session for each class. A simple overhead or slide should be prepared for the relevant area (using the individual maps linked to the individual assembly areas below), and the R.A.C.E posters used as a guide to the explanation. This should ensure that students know how and where to evacuate should the need arise, and not place staff, and particularly building wardens, at risk of injury trying to evacuate uninformed people.
The Communication of Emergency Procedures to Students document below outlines the information that should be communicated to students at the commencement of session.
