It is entirely within your right to formally report Sexual Misconduct. You can formally report something to the University and/or the police if it constitutes a criminal offence.
Report to the University
- Report and Support: If you submit a report with details, a specially trained Liaison Officer will be in touch within 2 University Working Days. Liaison Officers can help outline your formal reporting options (for both students and staff), as well as describing what these processes might look like and what an investigation would entail. Liaison Officers in particular, can help support reporting parties from the start to finish of any formal reporting route.
Report to the Police
We would strongly advise seeking the support of either a Report and Support Advisor or an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor, if you wish to report something to the police.
