How to report an incident

Violence, abuse and harassment have no place at our University. 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. 

Emergency assistance

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.
