What is Cyberbullying?

If someone is offending or intimidating you in a way which slanders or humiliates you or attacks an aspect of your identity - then this is bullying, whether this is online or offline.

Online bullying can take various forms, it could be internet trolls on a social media site, or it could come from someone you know who makes offensive comments in a group chat. It’s taken just as seriously as if the bullying took place in person and it has the same consequences.

If you have been a victim of bullying online, we’re here for you, and there is plenty of ways we can help, even if that’s just offering a confidential space for you to talk about it or if you want to take further steps.

Zero Tolerance to Cyberbullying

LUU and the University do not tolerate any form of cyberbullying and we have both policy and campaigns in place that aim to eradicate it and support anyone who has been experienced it.

How to Report Cyberbullying

Report the incident on the University’s & LUU’s Hate Crime reporting site

If the perpetrator is someone you know from University, you could look at putting in a complaint under the University’s policy on dignity and mutual respect. You can read more about this policy here.
