Support with harassment or other unacceptable behaviour

Everyone at Warwick, whether studying, working, or visiting, has the right to feel safe and supported. We are committed to encouraging an environment free from harassment, prejudice, and any socially unacceptable behaviour.

If you experience or witness any kind of inappropriate behaviour, there is confidential support available to guide you through your options.

Get support to decide what happens next

Report + Support is an online disclosure platform for students, staff or visitors who have experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct, bullying, harassment, discrimination and/or a hate crime.

It is designed to help guide you through your options. You can make a request to speak to an advisor and they’ll be in touch to confidentially discuss support and reporting options within two University working days. Our specially trained Liaison Officers will help you decide how far you want your report to go – and support you all the way, whatever your decision.

Alternatively, you can access self-care and online resources, or log an incident anonymously.

By making sure we report unacceptable behaviour, together we can make a difference.

New students will receive an ‘Introduction to Active Bystander’ workshop in Term 1, and the full Active Bystander Intervention course is offered throughout the academic year - you can register your interest now.

You can also explore other resources and opportunities that will help you to develop the skills and knowledge you need to be an Active Bystander and safely challenge unacceptable behaviour.
