Reporting harassment

What should I do if I'm being harassed or I see someone else being harassed?

Harassment, where you feel offended, humiliated or intimidated is unacceptable at UWA.  

Harassment may include threats, abuse, insults or taunts based on a person’s race or characteristics. If you believe you are being harassed or see someone else being harassed – don't wait, say something.

Racial, sexual or cultural harassment and discrimination on UWA campuses, buses and bus stops should be reported immediately to Campus Security.

Reporting an incident:

  • If you are away from campus and require immediate assistance, call police on 000
  • If you are on campus and need immediate assistance call the UWA Security emergency number 6488 2222 (this is available 24/7).
  • If something has happened to you or if you have observed something happening to a student (e.g. threatening behaviour, sexual assault, harassment, bullying), complete this form.
  • If you would like to talk someone, get in touch with Student Support Services or Guild Student Assist.
