About our approach
We understand the importance of providing support to any member of our community who has been affected by gender based and sexual violence or misconduct. We can offer support and counselling, as well as referrals to other specialist partner agencies such as Rape Crisis Scotland.
You do not have to report an incident to the University or the Police, but if you choose to do so, we will ensure that you are supported throughout the process. You can find out more information about your options and how we will support you. It is entirely up to you what action you want to take if you have been affected; we just want to make sure you are clear about your options and are adequately supported throughout the process. Remember, if you want to access support you just need to complete our short, simple form in our secure Report and Support system.
Our revised Gender Based Violence Strategy 2021-24 was approved by University Court in June 2021. The strategy is owned jointly by the University and the Students' Union.
In an emergency
If you're off campus, you should call 999 to reach any of the emergency services.
If you're on campus, call the Security Team any time, 24/7 on x2222 (on an internal phone) or 01786 467999 if using your mobile phone to request the Police.
If you need an ambulance, dial 999 directly to speak to a call handler. Once you have done so, call the Security Team on x 2222 or 01786 467999 as before to advise them that an ambulance will be arriving.
