The University of Newcastle, Australia

Will the University report an incident of Sexual Assault to the Police?

In exceptional circumstances, where there is serious risk of harm, or if you are under the age of 18, we may be required to provide information to the police. Should this be necessary, we will do this in consultation with you.

Alternatively, you can report an incident of sexual assault to NSW police at any stage. This may occur at the same time as a report to the University, at a different time, or not at all. Police provide the option to report and have the matter formally investigated, or to complete a report where vital information is provided to police, without the matter being formally investigated.
