Reporting Sexual Assault and Hate Crimes
Choosing to report anonymously means we might not be able to help you directly but can help others.
The information you give us today will help us to provide better support to others and inform work
across the university. An anonymous report allows us to better understand the prevalence of issues
within our community.
Any information you provide will remain private and confidential unless we believe there is serious
safety or welfare concern. In these circumstances, BU may judge that action is required
even if the person reporting is not requesting any. The information contained in your report will
only be passed on with your consent.
You can use this tool to report incidences of physical assault, sexual harassment, sexual assault,
online harassment, hate crimes, stalking, bullying or discrimination. To start, if you wish to
report anonymously, please click 'Report Anonymously' or if you wish to receive a call back from
an advisor the next working day please click 'Report and Receive a call back'.
You can use these forms to tell us about:
• your own experience
• something you have witnessed
• something you have been told about by the person who experienced it
If you encounter any problems whilst using this system then please report your problem online.
For BU staff, further information can be found on the Link for staff page.
For BU students, information about this can be found on the Sexual Assault and Harassment page
and the Hate Crime or Incident page.
