asylum seekers housed in Sydney university

On his radio show this morning, Hadley said approximately 80 Sri Lankan men were living at student accommodation inside Macquarie University

«In the grounds of the university there are two dorm buildings housing young women – those dorms are surrounded by the dormitories containing the 80 Sri Lankan men,» Hadley said

«According to people I’ve spoken to at the university, the young women feel both intimdated and frightened by having the men in close proximity. Some are in fact scared and conveyed that to police officers on the scene yesterday»

NSW Police today confirmed officers were investigating reports a man indecently assaulted a female university student while she was sleeping in her dormitory

Detectives have been told a 20-year-old woman was asleep in her dormitory when a man broke into her room and indecently assaulted her about 3.20am yesterday

The woman awoke during the incident and the man fled the scene

The man is described as 20-25 years old, thin build, dark skinned, with dark short curly hair. He was wearing no t-shirt and a pair of grey coloured tracksuit pants

Hadley has called on the Immigration Department to provide a report into why the university was doubling as «some sort of a Quasi detention centre»

Macquarie University officials later confirmed the grounds are being used to house asylum seekers

A statement released by the facility said the Macquarie University Village, which is owned and operated by the independent Campus Living Villages, made an agreement with the Red Cross› Asylum Seeker Assistance Scheme to provide temporary accomodation for refugees

«The university considers the presence of refugees at the Macquarie University Village a matter for Campus Living Villages and for the Department of Immigration and Citizenship,» the statement read

«Our concern is to ensure the welfare and safety of our students. We have provided ongoing counselling and security support to the student and broader campus community «

It is not known yet whether one of the 80 Sri Lankan asylum seekers is responsible for an indecent assault on a female student, but the attacker has been described as a «dark skinned male»
