Sexual harassment explained

What is sexual harassment?

Sexual Harassment is unwelcome behaviour or contact of a sexual nature which offends, intimidates, embarrasses or humiliates a person. Sexual harassment is not about sexual attraction: it is about inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour towards a member of the University community which may be detrimental to their study, employment or accommodation. 

There are many people you can see on campus who can help you with a sexual harassment issue and unacceptable behaviour.

Sexual Violence may take many forms including sexual assault and sexual abuse. Sexual assault and sexual abuse may also be criminal matters best investigated by the Police. More information on sexual violence can be found online.

Support services are available externally and on campus. A comprehensive listing is available online
