Talking to someone

If you, or someone you know, have experienced sexually based assault or harassment, you can talk with a professional and/or someone that you trust to get support, advice or suggestions on what you can do. This is not something that you have to cope with on your own. There are a number of free and confidential services available.

If you require the services of a translator please contact Campus Care.
