Hate Crime

Important note: for emergency or crisis advice please visit our urgent help page. You should always contact emergency services on 999 in an emergency.

Our Student Health & Wellbeing Service is here for students who have experienced any form of hate crime or hate incident. Seek support and advice on your options by clicking on the button below.

You can complete this online contact form if you are a student or a staff member on behalf of a consenting student. The form will allow you the option to tell us about what has happened either anonymously or with your contact details attached.

If you are the subject of a report of a hate related crime or incident, you can seek advice on relevant support by clicking here to contact Student Health and Wellbeing Services as well as guidance through the Student Advice Centre and the Student Progress Service.

We understand that seeking support and guidance after experiencing a distressing or traumatic incident is not always an easy decision to make. Through the Student Health & Wellbeing Service, we'll help you explore your options and provide you with support.

Helpful Information

Our Student Health & Wellbeing Service (SHWS) is an inclusive, safe space providing support for students of any gender identity, race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age or any other identifying characteristic.

Our support is confidential unless we believe that you or others are in immediate danger. Telling us what's happened and seeking support will not automatically trigger any complaints processes either with the university or the police. If you wish to make a report to the university, you can raise a complaint directly with the  Student Progress Service Student Disciplinary.

We understand it may be difficult to put into words what has happened. For further information that can help you understand the specific terminology around hate crimes and hate incidents if you are not sure, please see here:

Frequently asked questions

We understand that talking about what has happened may be difficult. So, we have put together frequently asked questions below to help you understand the basics of how our service works and what to expect.
