Sexual Harassment

We have a Zero Tolerance approach to sexual harassment.

The NUS define sexual harassment as:

Any form of unwanted verbal (such as; sexual comments, unwanted questions & derogatory sexual remarks), non-verbal (such as; wolf-whistling) or physical conduct of a sexual nature which creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading or offensive environment (including; groping, pinching & lifting up a skirt).”

Reporting Sexual Harassment

You can report any incident of sexual harassment or violence via the University’s online reporting system. The online reporting system can be used to report an incident anonymously.

Any incidents that arise within LUU can be reported to any member of staff, all of whom are trained in what to do if an incident arises, at any time. The person who experienced the incident will be fully supported and be able to decide what they want to happen next. The perpetrator, if identified, will be dealt with appropriately. 

You can access support from LUU Advice if you have experienced sexual harassment or violence. LUU Advice offer confidential support and can help you to report an incident.

Ask Angela

If you are uncomfortable with the person/people you are with, go to the bar or find a member of staff and ask for Angela. Our staff will then help you to discreetly get away from your party and advise you on how to get home safely.
