Gender-based Harassment

The University takes seriously the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. This is part of our commitment to providing a safe, inclusive and equitable environment for everyone who studies and works here.

Responding to gender-based harassment

The University has a number of resources and steps to support staff who experience, witness or are concerned about gender-based harassment (or harassment from an external and/or unknown source).

  • Where there is a real or imminent threat to personal safety, call the Police on 111 immediately.
  • Call the Staff Service Centre (SSC) on ext 86000. You will be directed to specially trained staff who will support you and ensure appropriate, confidential follow-up actions are taken to help keep you safe.
  • You can also report the incident to your academic head, line manager or HR representative and they will support you through the confidential reporting procedures.
