UCL runs a university-wide programme to combat bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct, spearheaded by an online ‘Support and Report’ tool. You can report anonymously or contact an advisor.
On the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion webpage you can find information about Dignity at UCL including UCL’s prevention of bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct policy and the procedures in place to launch a formal complaint. For policies aimed specifically at students, you can visit the student conduct policies web page.
You can request to speak with an advisor on Report + Support: An advisor can: talk through the University's procedures; inform you on how to make a complaint; and let you know what support is available, in confidence.
Student specific processes
Should you endure or observe sexual harassment we recommend you contact your personal tutor or a member of staff you trust, the student mediator, Ruth Siddall, the vice warden or warden of the halls of residences (if you are staying in one) or either the UCLU Women’s Officer, LGBQ+ Officer, Trans Officer or Welfare and International Officer if the incident occurred at a UCLU event. You can also contact the Institute Manager as the Institute’s EDI representative.
