The University of New South Wales has issued a general security alert, after being made aware of an alleged threat to the safety and security of students and staff on the Kensington campus.
UNSW states it has been liaising with NSW Police through its Anti-Terrorism arm, the security group, and Local Area Command.
The threat is non-specific, and comes from a disturbing post made by an anonymous user on 4chan.
UNSW earlier made a post to social media encouraging students to download their StaySafe security app, which provides minute-by-minute updates on campus security alerts.
The University has reportedly sent an email to students alerting them to the threat, but did not suggest students avoid the area or miss classes.
