A 22-year-old student has been taken to hospital after being stabbed by a 14-year-old boy on the grounds of the University of Sydney this morning.

Multiple police cars and paramedics rushed to the grounds after reports of the stabbing on Tuesday morning.

NSW Ambulance paramedics treated the man at the scene. He was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The teenager reportedly left by Parramatta Road and boarded a bus. He was later found near Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where he was arrested.

Police say the teenager and the alleged victim were not known to each other, and there was no ongoing risk to the public.

In an email to university staff and students, Vice Chancellor Mark Scott said, “I am shocked and saddened to inform you that a student in our community was attacked on our Camperdown campus this morning in what police believe is an isolated incident. The student is in hospital and is in a serious but stable condition,” Scott said.

“NSW Police have arrested the alleged attacker and have assured us that there is no ongoing threat to the community.”

The university campus is currently less occupied as students enjoy the semester break.
