Report an incident of harassment


At ARU, we’re committed to making sure that everyone in our community is treated with dignity and respect. Bullying, discrimination, harassment, hate crimes, sexual violence and harassment, and domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, class, or background.

What is Unsilenced?

Unsilenced is our online tool for students to access support following an incident of harassment, sexual violence, or other incident of abuse.

You can use it to tell us what happened anonymously, where you do not disclose any personal details. This information can really help us to improve our support. Alternatively, letting us know who you are tells us you’d like support from us. It is completely confidential.

If you're unsure about what has happened, you can find out more about the different types of incident you can report.

Please note that using Unsilenced will not result in a formal complaint and we will not be able to take formal or informal action. Visit My ARU for guidance on making a formal complaint.

If you’re in immediate danger, need immediate support or are looking for alternative support within the university, we have some useful resources below.

Letting us know what's happened

You can choose to remain anonymous, or to get support from us. We can also help if you wish to make a formal complaint to the University.
