How to report an incident

Sexual assault, harassment, bullying and discrimination have no place at our University.

If you have experienced sexual harassment or assault, you are not alone and it is not your fault. The University encourages you to report and seek support and has various channels for you to do so.

Anyone who comes forward to report an incident will be treated in a compassionate and non-judgemental manner. UOW has adopted a support-first model that works to ensure you are supported on your own terms - you are in control of what happens next.

Do you need emergency assistance?

If you are in need of urgent help or your life is being threatened please call Triple Zero (000).

UOW Security is also on hand 24 hours a day 7 days a week to provide assistance, first aid and security escorts. You can call or request their services via the SafeZone app or by phone on (02) 4221 4900.
