Support for survivors of sexual violence

  • Safety: if you have current concerns for your safety or require medical attention, please contact emergency services and the University support staff listed above.
  • Support: if you have been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted, you do not have to cope on your own – whether within or outwith daytime hours, Student Services staff are available to help on the contact numbers above. You may wish to seek support outside the University – please see the resource for students on sexual misconduct.
  • Information and resources: if you are safe and have access to support, but are unsure about what to do, the University has produced an advice and guidance resource for students on sexual misconduct.
