In addition, students are welcome to go to any member of staff they feel most comfortable in approaching.

Issues of bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct can be reported by students and staff via Report + Support. This tool enables individuals at UCL to report ‘anonymously’ or ‘contact an advisor’ to find out options for support and resolution. This initiative is part of UCL's Full Stop campaign to combat unacceptable behaviour in the institution.
