Harmful Sexual Behaviour

10 May 2024

We want you to feel safe and supported. Find out what to do if you or someone you know has experienced harmful sexual behaviour.


The next steps you take are your choice. You can seek support for anything that has happened, at any time, whether it is recent or in the past.

If you, or someone you know, are feeling unsafe on campus:

  • Call UC security on 0800 823 637 or press the red button on a Help Point Tower (blue light) for assistance.
  • UC Security will take the appropriate steps to ensure your safety and access to support can contact emergency and medical help if needed.
  • If you don't feel comfortable calling UC Security, consider calling someone you know and trust so that they can help you make the next step.

If you need immediate medical help, call 111. Say "ambulance" and tell them where you are.

If you are in danger and need help now, call 111. Say "police" and tell them where you are.
