*Content note: discussion of sexual violence and assault

The Students’ Union has a zero tolerance stance to any kind of sexual harassment, and will do everything we can to support students affected by sexual violence.

If you have experienced sexual violence, it is your choice whether you want to take any further action and there is lots of support available to you. If you would like to receive support from UCL, you can contact the Student Support and Wellbeing team to schedule an appointment. They can also help arrange for you to see a Rape Crisis adviser if you choose.

If you would like to report an incident involving another UCL student or staff member, you can use UCL's Report + Support tool. If you have any questions about this process, or would just like to speak to someone about your situation, our Advice Service is always on hand to listen and support you.  You can book an appointment with the Advice Service using our contact form.
