Report & Support
Recently, the University has released the new online Report & Support tool to help students both report their concerns and find support for them. You can report anonymously, or make reports with personal details. You will be given the option speak to an Advisor when you make a complaint with personal details (not anonymously).
This new tool makes report accessible and safe for all members of the University, as the Student Services Team at the University of Huddersfield will maintain full confidentiality of the information you provide. Any anonymous information given will only be used for monitoring and analysis to improve our available support.
You can use this tool to report hate crimes, bullying, sexual violence, harassment, physical abuse, discrimination, intimidation, and anything else that has made you feel unsafe on campus.
Information on the Students Union’s Zero Tolerance Policy can be found here. The Equality Act 2010 prohibits harassment related to age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
Laura Jackson is the Safer Student Officer at the University Of Huddersfield whose role is to keep you safe by offering crime prevention advice and safety tips either on a one-to-one basis or in groups. She is also available for questioning regarding reporting your abuse to the police and can support you through any reports that you feel comfortable making. Laura is a highly trusted member of staff on campus and for the last 8 years, she has worked in Huddersfield and the wider Kirklees area.
We do encourage you to report any suspicious activity/concerns to Laura, no matter how small, as she welcomes such reports to maintain a safe community. Her working days are Monday to Friday, 8.00am-4.00pm and her office is in the Atrium, Schwann Building. She can be contacted at email@example.com.
In the case of an emergency, you should always call 999. You can also call 101 to make reports or enquiries about your experience.
