Sexual Harm Support and Reporting

We are committed to ensuring you feel as comfortable as possible coming to us for help and support in relation to a sexual harm incident or in reporting an incident to the appropriate authorities.

If something has happened to you, or someone you know, and you would like to get some support and learn about your options, please contact one of our Wellbeing Advisors on 021 589 475 or [email protected] for a confidential appointment.

Alternatively, you can phone Student Health and Support at 03 325 3835 (8:30am-4pm. Monday to Friday) and you will be booked in with a nurse or doctor.  You may choose to see a counsellor after that.
