Report and support

Last month, our SU told you about our new online report and support system.

The system is now live, and you can use it to report any instance of sexual violence, harassment and hate crime at our campuses.

The system is easy to use, mobile-friendly, and gets you the help you need. Whoever you are, and whoever you’re reporting, we will listen to you.
