Violence, abuse and harassment have no place at our University.
How to report an incident
If you have witnessed or experienced sexual assault, harassment, domestic and family violence, bullying or discrimination, you are not alone and it is not your fault.
The University encourages you to speak out, report and seek support and has various channels for you to do so. We have adopted a support-first model that works to ensure you are supported on your own terms - you are in control of what happens next.
If you are in need of urgent help or believe 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.
We encourage you to talk to the University so we can take action. You can report an incident to UOW's Safe and Respectful Communities team.
If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, either recently or in the past, you can report the assault to the NSW Police Department. UOW Support Staff can also assist you through this process.
This free and confidential services provides specialist advice and support and is available via text or phone 24/7.
It is possible to make an anonymous report thought the Complaints Management Centre. If you do make an anonymous report we do encourage you to seek support from the university or an external service provider.
