Sexual Harassment, Assault and Misconduct

UNSW Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct & Rape

As a student of UNSW you have the right to feel safe and secure at all times and to be able to fully participate in all aspects of life on campus. We believe that unwanted sexual attention including harassment, stalking and assault can prevent a student from taking part in activities and involvement in the life of the University.

We will support students who report sexual harassment or sexual assault. There are internal (i.e. within UNSW) and external options available. You will find some suggestions and resources to assist below.
