Reporting an Incident
We take reports of bullying and harassment, hate incidents, sexual misconduct and domestic abuse seriously. All staff, students and visitors to our campus are able to use the online Report + Support tool to report an incident or seek support.
Report + Support allows you to report anonymously if you wish to do so. Providing information in this way allows us to better understand the issues that have an impact on our community, to monitor patterns, and to shape our prevention of and response to unwanted behaviour.
You can also make a report and provide your contact details. This means someone in the University can respond and if requested, take action. Your report will remain confidential and the information contained in it will only be passed on to relevant and specifically trained staff members as required to investigate the incident where appropriate. We will not disclose any personal or identifiable information to others unless we believe there is a genuine threat to a person’s health and safety.
Read the Bullying & Harassment Policy and Procedure for Students.
Policies on Sexual Misconduct and Violence are available via this page and there is more information on prevention and response here.
