You are not alone

We have a step-by-step guide for using the Report and Support tool at the College.

Acts of bullying, harassment, discrimination and sexual violence are not acceptable. Imperial College's Student Services have several avenues of support for students who have been victims of bullying, harassment, discrimination or sexual violence. It's important to remember that if you have been a victim of these behaviours, you are not alone, the College is here to support you.

Report and Support

Report and Support is a tool you can use to disclose unwelcoming behaviours such as bullying, harassment, sexual violence, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, racial discrimination and more. You can use the tool if you have witnessed an incident of experienced something directly. You can choose to disclose something anonymously or provide us with your details and we will put you in touch with a Student Harassment Support Contact to discuss you disclosure.

Making a disclosure via Report and Support does not mean you have made a formal report to the College, however we can help you make a formal report if you wish to do so.

Bullying, harassment and discrimination

Our Student Harassment Support Contacts (HSC) are Imperial staff who have received specialist training which enables them to listen to your concerns and experiences. A Student HSC will help you understand what support options are available to you. This might include an informatl resolution, not taking any further action, making a formal report, or accessing specialist support. You can contact the team directly by email shsc@imperial.ac.uk.

Sexual Violence Liaison Officers

We have seven Sexual Violence Liaison Officers (SVLOs) who have received specialist training to support students who have experienced sexual violence. They are not counsellors but will listen to you and can help you access the right support and information. An SVLO can support you regardless of whether the incident of sexual violence happened on or off-campus, or whether it was recent or in the past. You can contact the team directly by email svlo@imperial.ac.uk.

Not sure where to go for support?

We understand that it can be a bit overwhelming when you need support and you're not sure where to start. Our job is to try and make accessing support as simple as possible for you. If you're not sure who to contact for support, you make a disclosure through Report and Support and you will be guided through making a disclosure. If you choose to make a named disclosure, you will be contacted by one of our team members directly who will ensure you get the right support. 

Alternatively, if you don't wish to use our Report and Support tool, you can contact us directly via email at student-services@imperial.ac.uk.
