We will support students and staff who report sexual harassment or sexual assault. There are internal (i.e. within UNSW) and external options available.

You will find some suggestions and resources at the following locations: http://subjectguides.library.unsw.edu.au/elise/respect and  https://student.unsw.edu.au/harassment – this page has a link to a reporting portal which can be used anonymously.

You may wish to speak to someone before making a report e.g. a friend or family member or someone from UNSW. The person you speak to can also help make a report if that is something you choose to do. The UNSW has trained First Responders that you can speak to in a number of Faculties and in student services. First Responders understand that reporting sexual misconduct can be difficult. They are not counsellors but they are trained to provide an appropriate initial response to your concerns and guide you to the right services.
