How to report an incident

We encourage students to report bullying, harassment, sexual misconduct, hate crime, assault or discrimination by using this quick and simple reporting tool. You can report any incident through our online platform, Report + Support.

We understand that reporting an incident can be daunting, so you can choose to report anonymously.
