Speak Up – report abuse, harm or hate

This reporting tool allows staff, students, University contractors and anyone else outside of the University (who interacts with our staff and students) to report incidents of abuse, harassment, sexual misconduct, hate crimes or incidents that have taken place on or off campus (including placement providers).

We will not disclose any personal or identifiable information to others without your consent unless there is a legal requirement for us to do so, or we believe that you, or someone else, is at serious or imminent risk of harm.

Would you like to be contacted about the incident you are reporting, or would you like to report anonymously? This must be selected?

The University has a number of Sexual Violence Liaison Officers (SVLOs) who are volunteer staff members that are able to support and advise students who have experienced or been accused of sexual misconduct. They have received specific training around how to take disclosures and signpost individuals to relevant support, as well as outlining their options and supporting them through the University’s conduct process, if the individual chooses to formally report.

Please note this service is for students only, not staff. Also, if this matter has been reported to the police and you are accessing external support, such as an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA), a SVLO might not be appropriate

Would you like the university to allocate you a SVLO?
If yes, would you prefer

The university will try its best to accommodate your preference. However, as this is a volunteer service, it might not always be possible.

If we are unable to accomodate your preference, do you still wish to proceed with a SVLO?
