A safe campus is the shared responsibility of our whole University community. Sometimes you may feel vulnerable and have concerns about how you have been treated verbally or physically by others on or off-campus. We all have a responsibility to report inappropriate behaviour and we are committed to helping you stay safe and making sure that you can find help quickly, when you need it.
If you ever experience or witness sexual violence, aggression, hate crime or harassment – the University’s support services are here for you and will always listen seriously and impartially to your concerns. We can offer you guidance on further support and options so you can progress your report including both via the Police and/or the University.
If in doubt – report it!
Telling someone about your concerns can be a first step to getting the right information and support. We will support you even if you don’t want to progress any concern formally either with the University or the Police. If you wish to remain anonymous you can do so using the on-line reporting tool.
