Bullying and Harassment

Everyone at the University of Warwick, whether studying, working, or visiting, has the right to feel safe. Harassment of any kind is completely unacceptable, and our community is an environment where prejudice and socially unacceptable behaviour are never tolerated. If you have experienced something that felt wrong, we encourage you to access Report and Support. You can report anonymously but this only contributes to data collection. If you would like to receive support, you must provide contact details. You have complete control over the process and are not required to take further action.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The Bhalla Lab has worked hard to put together a fantastic list of Equity related articles relevant to academic and the research environment.

Help and Advice

The SU Advice Centre ( opens in a new window) is a free, confidential, professional service, independent of the University. Whether you need support in relation to your studies, accommodation, money worries or personal problems, you can log an inquiry or book an in-person appointment. Your assigned advisor will provide guidance, support and information to help resolve your problem.
